Buhari did not ban Twitter – APC insists


The National Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ismaeel Ahmed, has insisted the President Muhammadu Buhari government did not ban the use of Twitter, as it only suspended its operations.

Ahmed stated this at a press conference on Wednesday, heralding the rescheduled Progressive Youths Conference now to hold next week.

“The government didn’t ban social media as a lot of people will insinuate. It is very important that we know that because Facebook is still in operation, Instagram is still in operation, WhatsApp is still in operation, and a lot of other social media platforms are still in operation.

“In fact, some people will tell you Twitter is for the elite young people and not necessarily for the general public.

“I think there are far more subscribers on Facebook in Nigeria than there are on Twitter. But haven said that, it is still a very important medium for people.

“So, whatever it is that the government felt to suspend Twitter, not even ban, there was a suspension and of course, there is a conversation going on between the government and the representatives of Twitter and I’m sure it will be resolved,” Ahmed said.
