On June 4, the Nigerian government decided to ban the use of Twitter in their country. In a statement, the government led by President Muhammadu Buhari said that they would ‘indefinitely’ ban Twitter from being used in the country. The statement also cited the reason for the ban being “the persistent use of the platform for activities that we [think are] capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.”
This ban came after Twitter deleted a tweet by Buhari and since then, people from Nigeria, which happens to be one of the most populated African countries have been protesting the government’s decision. The days after the Twitter ban saw Nigerians using VPN to access the site and post their messages about how they truly felt about the ban. At this time, well-known Nigerian actor Solade has shown his support for his government’s action.
