Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has charged social media platforms to deactivate accounts associated with President Muhammadu Buhari and his government.
Fayose made this call while reacting to the decision of the Federal Government to suspend the operation of Twitter in Nigeria.
Recall that the minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, while giving the reason for the suspension had cited the “persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.
Fayose in a post on his Twitter account wrote, “Those undermining the rights of Nigerians to freedom of expression should themselves not enjoy such right.”
“Therefore, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms should deactivate all accounts associated with @MBuhari and his government t as done in Turkey in 2020 for us to have peace in Nigeria,” he wrote.
