    US Mission Issues Statement On Twitter Ban, Read What She Said

    Twitter Ban

    The United State Diplomatic Mission in Nigeria on Saturday issued a statement concerning the Twitter ban. This came on the heels when the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, citing the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.

    However, the US government opined through the Mission’s statement that the ban is undermining Nigerians ability to exercise their fundamental human right.

    The excerpt;

    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
