"People's rights to express themselves must not be compromised" - Desmond Elliot reacts to Twitter suspension in Nigeria

Nigerian actor and Politician, Desmond Elliot, representing Surulere at the Lagos State House of Assembly, has reacted to the suspension of Twitter operations in Nigeria. (Read More Here).

In his statement, Dessy, told the Federal government that people's right to express themselves freely must not be compromised. 

His statement reads: 

"I want to admonish our government to always remember that the people’s right to express themselves freely must not be compromised. This ban, no matter the reasons proffered tramples upon our fundamental rights as people.

"In a democratic society like ours, we must weigh the economic and social impact of this ban on the populace — especially our teeming youths and entrepreneurs who depend solely on this platform to carry out their legitimate business. 

"In the past, our government have shown the required goodwill to stand on side of the people even when it’s not too convenient for them to do so. 
I believe that this won’t be an exception.

"I want to appeal to the government to reconsider this ban in the interest of our people and our country at large."
