Former President Donald Trump has thrown weight behind Nigerian government’s decision to block access to Twitter.
The Ex-president who was greatly defeated by incumbent Joe Biden in the last presidential election called on more nations to follow suit.
“Congratulations to the country of Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their President,” Trump said in an emailed statement.
“More COUNTRIES should ban Twitter and Facebook for not allowing free and open speech—all voices should be heard.
“In the meantime,” the former president continued, “competitors will emerge and take hold. Who are they to dictate good and evil if they themselves are evil? Perhaps I should have done it while I was President. But [Facebook founder Mark] Zuckerberg kept calling me and coming to the White House for dinner telling me how great I was. 2024?”
Recall that through the office of the Minister for Information and Culture, the Federal Government announced Friday that Twitter’s operations had been “suspended indefinitely” for undermining the unity of Nigeria.
