In his words, he said:

“The government has suspended indefinitely the operations of Twitter in Nigeria because of the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.”

The government also directed the regulatory agency, the National Broadcasting Commission, to immediately commence licensing all OTT and social media operations in Nigeria.

“The main reason for this is because of the persistent use of Twitter in particular for activities that are inimical to the corporate existence of Nigeria.”

“IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu in particular, his platform of choice to destabilize the country is Twitter.

“Twitter is actually the platform of choice for the separatist leader who resides outside Nigeria but issues directives for his members to attack the symbols of authority such as policemen, soldiers, correctional centers, electoral offices and this has been done willfully and consistently without consequences using always the Twitter platform.”
