Buhari trying to bribe us, playing smart – Nigerian People react as FG lifts Twitter ban - 2023
Nigerian People have accused President Muhammadu Buhari of trying to play smart ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Reacting to the lifting of the ban on Twitter, some Nigerian People said the Buhari government was trying to bribe them ahead of the polls.
The lifting of the ban followed approval by President Muhammadu Buhari after 222 days.
The decision was revealed by the Chairman Technical Committee Nigeria-Twitter Engagement and Director-General National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi.
In a statement on Wednesday in Abuja, Kashifu noted the approval was given following a memo written to Buhari by his Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Ali Ibrahim.
The Nigerian government had in June 2021, banned the operations of Twitter in the country. The ban was placed a few days after the micro-blogging site deleted Buhari’s tweet.
However, Nigerian People raised an eye-brow about lifting the ban about a year before the 2023 general elections.
While others berated the Nigerian government, others commended authorities for the step taken.
