‘The most foolish statement’ Nigerians react to Actor Yemi Solade’s insensitive comment on the Twitter ban

Nollywood actor Yemi Solade has been dragged on social media over his comment on the Twitter ban for saying the microblogging platform insulted Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.

Last week, the Federal Government suspended the microblogging platform for allegedly allowing contents capable of threatening the corporate existence of Nigerians and deleting genocide tweet of the president.

However, many Nigerians have been accessing the platform through Virtual Private Network, and the government has vowed to prosecute those flouting the Twitter ban.

In an interview with Goldmyne TV, the veteran actor Yemi Solade applauded the Buhari led government for their decision adding that Twitter went too far by insulting the President and, by extension, Nigerians.

According to the actor, although the Twitter ban trampled on our fundamental human rights; however, Twitter was not helping the country as the Nigerian youths were always instigated negative comments on the government.

Reacting social media user slammed the actor for spitting insensitive comment, adding he’s not mature enough to see that the president went against the Twitter policy with his genocidal tweet.

    Everyone is entitled to his opinion What Yemi Solade said is not out of place and it is another way of viewing the whole issue It is not possible for all of us to view issues the same way. Twitter actually seems to be one-sided and umfair in its so-called policies. Why allow destructive tweets about Nigerian government and then deleting the president’s tweet? What is sauce for the goose ought to be sauce for the gander.

    Already, the publisher of the said statement have concluded by labelled the actor’s openion as been insensitive, whereas every individual have right to his/her own openion or are you telling us that all the statement Namdi Kanu has been insinuating on the platform is not more injurious to what our President said, except any short sighted or biased mind can attest to your write up.
