The immediate past Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has lamented the continued ban on Twitter placed by the Nigerian government.
The Federal Government had placed the ban on grounds that the platform was being used to undermine Nigeria’s cooperate existence.
With the ban now 100 days old, Saraki urged the government to take a look at the effect of the decision on the people.
“When we talk about the Twitter ban, we must look at it from the point of view of how it affects the livelihood of young Nigerians”, he said.
This is as he reminded the authorities that Twitter is like a marketplace where people go to sell their products, goods and engage in business.
“As a government, you have to ask yourself: ‘How does such a ban affect my people?’; ‘How does it affect the most important part of my population – the young people?”
“Whatever decisions that we make, we must put the people forward”, the former Kwara Governor noted.
