"Reverse the suspension of Twitter for greater good of Nigerians" - Governor Seyi Makinde tells FG

Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has appeal to the Federal Government to reverse this suspension for the greater good of Nigerians." (Read More Here).


His statement reads: "Statement by Governor Seyi Makinde Regarding the Suspension of Twitter’s Operations in Nigeria by the Federal Government
It has become imperative for me to release a statement regarding the suspension of Twitter’s operations in Nigeria by the Federal Government.

"As leaders, we should go beyond emotional reactions to issues and think about how our actions will affect the people we lead and our international ratings socially and economically.

"Twitter has become the platform for young people and indeed all Nigerians to exercise their fundamental right to express and publish an opinion. They use the platform to complain, argue and give feedback to government and its agencies who in turn, use these to improve policies.

"This is a fundamental point that should be kept in mind as we debate the necessity of this suspension. We should also remember that Twitter has gone beyond a source of communication for many of our hardworking youths in Nigeria. It has become a source of livelihood for many, irrespective of their political affiliations or religious leanings.

"Nigerian youths and digital communications organisations earn a living from being able to use the platform to post communications on behalf of their clients. 
Others who may not have physical stores also rely on Twitter to give visibility to their products and services.

"I, therefore, use this medium to appeal to the Federal Government to reverse this suspension for the greater good of Nigerians."
