He revealed that every Nigerian expected the US-based company to consider Nigeria as the hub of Twitter business in Africa.

Lai Mohammed thereafter blasted the EndSaRS protesters calling their attitudes unpatriotic because they used the social media platform to paint Nigeria as a hell where no one can reside. He concluded by saying that this would serve as a strong lesson to Nigerians because Ghana is the champion of democracy in Africa now, he told Nigerians that the government isn't against criticisms but it must be stated in the right way.

Job opportunities would have been created if the Twitter headquarters was sited in Nigeria, it would have given Nigeria a lot of visibility. This is what you get when you demarket your own country, thank God the United States government revealed that these allegations during EndSaRS are fake"
