Twitter Ban Update: Seyi Makinde Cautions PMB Over Twitter Ban

Gov Seyi Makinde, Oyo State Commissioners,


Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has reacted to the Nigerian Federal government’s decision to suspend Twitter operations in the country.

In a statement shared on his Twitter page this morning, the governor reminded the Federal government of how important the social networking platform is to Nigerians of today.

He points out that the app has become a source of livelihood to some Nigerians and stressed that as leaders, the government should go beyond emotional reactions to issues and think about how our actions will affect the people we lead and our international ratings socially and economically.

Read the statement below,

It has become imperative for me to release a statement regarding the suspension of Twitter’s operations in Nigeria by the Federal Government.

As leaders, we should go beyond emotional reactions to issues and think about how our actions will affect the people we lead and our international ratings socially and economically.

Twitter has become the platform for young people and indeed all Nigerians to exercise their fundamental right to express and publish an opinion.

They use the platform to complain, argue and give feedback to government and its agencies who in turn, use these to improve policies. This is a fundamental point that should be kept in mind as we debate the necessity of this suspension.

We should also remember that Twitter has gone beyond a source of communication for many of our hardworking youths in Nigeria. It has become a source of livelihood for many, irrespective of their political affiliations or religious leanings.

Nigerian youths and digital communications organizations earn a living from being able to use the platform to post communications on behalf of their clients.

Others who may not have physical stores also rely on Twitter to give visibility to their products and services.

Furthermore, I believe the Federal Government should be actively interested in how certain policies and action will affect investor confidence.

I, therefore, use this medium to appeal to the Federal Government to reverse this suspension for the greater good of Nigerians.
