Song Of The Week
The minister of Culture and Information Lai Mohammed has announced to the general public why Nigerian Government will keep banning social media Apps in the country
The Minister who appeared before house committees on communication, justice, information and culture, and national security and intelligence on Tuesday June 22, added that the ban of Twitter operations in the country is a good opportunity for “resourceful Nigerians to also look at how they can have an app that can replace Twitter”.
“On Twitter not being the only social media in Nigeria but banning Twitter alone, honestly, we suspended Twitter because Twitter became a platform of choice for those that want to bring down this country. “If any other platform does it, we will suspend their operations too.
It is because there is a country called Nigeria that they have business here.
“Honestly, I think it is a good opportunity for our very resourceful Nigerians to also look at how they can have an app that can replace Twitter, and it would be patronised by all of us. We have received a few approaches and we want to encourage them.”
On those whose businesses have been affected by the Twitter ban, the Minister stressed there has to be a country first before people make money.
He also revealed that they are ready to hold discussions with the social media giant. Lai added;
