Mr. Lai Mohammed, the Minister for Information and Culture says Twitter is Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s choicest platform in his bid to destabilise Nigeria.
Lai said this on Monday evening during a chat with the BBC News Africa, insisting that the Muhammadu Buhari-led Government will not sit by and allow people like Kanu tear the country apart.
He said, “The government has suspended indefinitely the operations of Twitter in Nigeria because of the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.
“The government also directed the regulatory agency which is the National Broadcasting Commission to immediately commence the process of licensing all OTT and social media operations in Nigeria.
“The main reason for this is because of the persistent use of Twitter in particular for activities that are inimical to the corporate existence of Nigeria.”
Mohammed added, “IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu in particular, his platform of choice to destabilise the country is Twitter.
