The federal government of Nigeria claimed Twitter has caused a lot of harm than good in Nigeria, especially during the EndSars protest. This led to the banning of Twitter by the Nigerian government, and since then, the app has not been unbanned. A lawyer and human right activist known as Inibehe Effiong has said what he has to say about government banning Twitter in Nigeria.
Many people said the banning of Twitter in Nigeria is a very wrong step taken by the government, there's no good reason the government have given to show why they banned Twitter. Effiong said the government should leave Twitter alone and solve all the problems we are facing in this country instead.
He said the app wasn't responsible for killing many protesters at the Lekki toll gate, neither is it responsible for the killings going on by herdsmen in Nigeria. Many bad things have happened in Nigeria, and all the government has to do is blame Twitter and the CEO of the app for causing damages to the country.
Banning Twitter is never the solution to Nigeria's problems and it can never be, banning the app to reduce violence can never work out. The government should leave Twitter alone and solve the numerous problems in Nigeria says Effiong. Like, share and follow me up.
