Twitter Suspension ‘Sends Poor Message To Investors’ – US Cautions Nigerian Government

Spread the love

The United States mission in Nigeria has reacted to the Federal Government’s suspension of the operations of the micro blogging and social networking service, Twitter.

Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed on Friday announced the “indefinite” suspension in a statement on Friday by his spokesman Segun Adeyemi.

Telecommunications companies have complied with the directive, and have blocked access to Twitter in the country.

Reacting, the US said that the recent suspension undermines citizens’ fundamental freedom and also sends a wrong message to investors.

The 

statement reads, “Nigeria’s constitution provides for freedom of expression. The Government’s recent #Twitterban undermines Nigerians’ ability to exercise this fundamental freedom and sends a poor message to its citizens, investors and businesses.

“Banning social media and curbing every citizen’s ability to seek, receive, and impart information undermines fundamental freedoms. As President Biden has stated, our need for individual expression, open public conversation, and accountability has never been greater.

“The path to a more secure Nigeria lies in more, not less communication, alongside concerted efforts toward unity, peace, and prosperity.”
