Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and a presidential candidate in 2023, has warned that Nigerians could abuse the microblogging network Twitter, while applauding the Nigerian government for removing the restriction and providing “safe resumption of access.”
In his first post on the site in over 200 days, the former Lagos governor said social media, particularly Twitter, empowered Nigerians’ social and economic empowerment, and that he was delighted the government recognized this.
Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s consent, the Nigerian government lifted the suspension of Twitter activities in the country on Wednesday.
“Social media – indeed all media, including Twitter – is a tool for us all to communicate, report, share, and connect with stories and each other; to facilitate economic and social empowerment for Nigerians,” Tinubu tweeted. They can, and do, however, be misunderstood.
Tinubu tweeted, “Social media – indeed all media – including Twitter, are a means for us to all communicate, report, share and engage with stories and each other; to enable economic and social empowerment for Nigerians. But they can be and sometimes are misused.
“I commend the FG for recognising these aspects and most importantly, concluding negotiations for the safe return of access to Twitter to the millions of Nigerians who use it, daily. Welcome back, one and all.”
Meanwhile, Tinubu had earlier this week informed President Buhari of his intention to run for the presidency in 2023 claiming it has been his lifelong ambition to rule Nigeria.
