Reno Omokri To President Muhammadu Buhari’s Administration
The suspension of the operations of Twitter in Nigeria announced earlier today by the Buhari administration is not in keeping with democracy, the rule of law, and the independence of the media.
Additionally, it will affect the right to free speech guaranteed all Nigerians by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigerian, 1999 (as amended).
At all times, the actions of the government must be guided by the rule of law, and not the whims and caprices of whoever is in power. Power is ephemeral and should bow to the law. It is not too late to revisit this hasty action, and I urge the federal government to see reason and reconsider its actions, knowing that it rose to power, in no small part due to Twitter.
How can you announce your suspension of Twitter on Twitter and expect to be taken seriously? Today’s suspension of the activities of Twitter in Nigeria by the Muhammadu Buhari administration should be ignored by Jack Dorsey. The Buhari government has no means of enforcing the suspension.
If they block Twitter’s URL, Nigerians will bypass their blockade by using a VPN. Even officials of the Buhari regime are still on Twitter.
Facebook today also deleted General Buhari’s genocidal post. Will he also suspend Facebook’s operations in Nigeria?
