Fatahu Muhammad, a member of the House of Representatives representing the Daura Federal Constituency in Katsina State, has backed Twitter’s suspension from operating in Nigeria.

Fatahu, who is said to be President Buhari’s cousin, questioned why Nigerians are attacking the government over the suspension of the microblogging site during an investigative hearing organized by the House joint committees on Information, National Orientation, Ethics and Values, as well as the National Security, Justice, and Commerce, on the controversial Twitter ban.

“For God sake, what is social media? Are we eating social media? Let us go back to the resources, and harvest them, and let keep this thing aside, and face the real problem in Nigeria.

My colleagues have spoken the mind of their constituents. If I would speak the mind of my constituents, I would include the president, because out of 360 of us, I am the only one voted by the president. Look, Nigeria first, let us be honest to ourselves, let us call a spade a spade,” he said.

While asking for media regulation, Fatahau said that the administration was saved from embarrassment by Twitter’s ban in response to the removal of Mr Buhari’s tweet.

“We should please regulate the media. If the minister did not ban Twitter on the instruction of the President, the kind of insults to the sovereignty of Nigeria from the users of Twitter would be more than what we are facing. Let’s tell ourselves the truth, Nigeria first. Sometimes, when I am reading tweets, I am disappointed with the youths (because) we are the future of Nigeria,” he said
