On Friday evening, the federal government stated that the microblogging website has been suspended in Nigeria through the Ministry of Information.
The restriction comes just days after the platform removed President Buhari’s tweets.
Femi Fani Kayode, reacting to the Nigerian government’s decision to ban Twitter in the country, called the action “absurd and unhelpful.” He also claimed that whoever encouraged Trump to suspend Twitter is his greatest foe.
Femi Fani-Kayode wrote: “Suspending @Twitter from Nigeria simply because they removed a dangerous, irresponsible & insensitive tweet by @MBuhari is the most absurd and counterproductive move that the FG could have made. Whoever advised Mr. President to make this indefensible move is his biggest enemy.”
