Sanwo-Olu flays Buhari govt over #Twitterban

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State says the Federal Government can handle the Twitter imbroglio better, adding that the government can sign ‘rules of engagement’ with the San Francisco-based social media giant on Twitter usage in Nigeria.

He made the statement on Monday while featuring on Arise TV’s ‘The Morning Show’ programme.

According to him, “People are losing money but there are also security issues. Let us be circumspect and not throw the baby away with the bathwater.”

Last week, the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), suspended Twitter operations in Nigeria, citing the “persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”. The Federal Government’s action followed a deletion of a controversial civil war post by the President.

The Buhari regime has since come under fire for what many termed as a restriction of the right of expression. The international community including the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, amongst others have since knocked the Buhari regime for the action but the Federal Government has been unyielding in its stance insisting that the sovereignty of the West African nation must be respected by the San Francisco tech giant.
