Your Right and How Twitter Ban Affects You.

Twitter ban or suspension as the case may be is an infringement; it is a fundamental right of a citizen to express his or her opinion via any medium that pleases such citizen to convey the messages. 

By the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Section: 39. 

  1. “Every person shall be entitled to freedom of expression, including the freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference.”
  2. “Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (1) of this section, every person shall be entitled to own, establish and operate any medium for the dissemination of information, ideas and opinions.”

It is a high level of impunity and a breach of a fundamental human right to see president Buhari in the middle of Twitter controversial and brouhaha. 

It shows the president has misplaced priority and focus based on his endless assurances to the citizens of Nigeria according to his manifestos. 

The Nigerians of today are at their breaking point already and it will be more cataclysmic to incite a hungry and angry man.

The majority of Nigerians have made millions of Naira via Twitter and this in return has contributed to the GDP of Nigeria. International clients and investors don’t necessarily go far in employing skilful freelancers in Nigeria. 

Twitter is one big family, if you know how to communicate yourself, sell yourself (skills), build trust and relationship politely, trust me your clients are on the timeline and deals are on your way. 

International communities US, UK, EU and other countries that value the right of citizens and human at large strongly showed their displeasure over the action of FG’s in suspending twitter. 

The Federal Government had forgotten so soon, that he also got its larger part of publicity on Twitter during the 2015 election campaign. It is insensitive of Buhari to now bite the fingers that lifted him. (Tweets, retweet, likes and quotes).  

It’s high time the Federal Government realize the importance of Twitter as a livelihood for millions of Nigerians, both home and abroad in fostering a business relationship. 

It is unconstitutional to take the right of the citizens because a president misplaced his words and his inciting comments went against the policy of @twitter. 

It shows that Buhari didn’t go through the policy at the point of opening the Twitter account, the wisdom they say, is profitable to guide. 

This is a solidarity call to Nigerians, stay strong and be sure that your voice is the only weapon that a tyrant doesn’t want to hear. 

An injury to one is an injury to all. 

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

The question we should ask is; what does it profit Nigeria Government to ban Twitter?
