Buhari’s tweet: Adamu Garba asks FG to block Twitter from Nigerian internet space



Adamu Garba, former presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the Federal Government should shut down Twitter from Nigeria’s internet space.


Garba said Twitter has no right to take down President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet.


In a tweet, the former presidential aspirant said the micro-blogging site should be expunged from Nigeria.


He wrote: “Twitter has no right to infuse into our local political affairs. It’s a company not a government.


“By removing our democratically elected President’s speech to the people of Nigeria, Twitter needs to be shut down from Nigerian internet space.


“Twitter needs to get out of Nigeria.”


Recall that Nigerians had called for the suspension of Buhari’s Twitter account for saying ‘individuals or groups who want to destroy his government will receive the shock of their lives.”


Speaking on the destruction of national assets, the President had said they will be treated in a language they will understand.


Following the development, on Wednesday, Twitter deleted the comment, saying it violated its rules.
