Twitter Is Not Our Problem – Tiwa Savage Lectures Buhari And Nigerians After Social Media Platform Ban

Tiwa Savage, a Nigerian singer, and Afrobeat queen, has contributed her voice to the debate over Twitter’s ban in Nigeria.

As previously reported by SleekGist, Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, announced the platform’s suspension in a statement made on Friday afternoon, June 4.

He cited the “persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence” as a reason for the suspension.
The suspension of Twitter has sparked outrage among Nigerians with most of them slamming the leadership for making a needless move after Buhari’s speech was deleted by Twitter.

However, Tiwa Savage’s view, the mother of one pointed to the fact that there are more pressing issues bedeviling the nation such as the killings in Imo State where young girls are abducted and murdered.

According to her, Twitter is not Nigeria’s problem therefore, the leadership’s attention on banning Twitter over a speech that was deleted is a case of misplaced priorities as the kidnapping of more girls is a major problem that needs drastic remedies to it.

Reacting to this, Twitter’s Senior Policy Communications Manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa, Sarah Hart, in an email response sent to the media said;

“THE ANNOUNCEMENT MADE BY THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT THAT THEY HAVE SUSPENDED TWITTER’S OPERATIONS IN NIGERIA IS DEEPLY CONCERNING. WE’RE INVESTIGATING AND WILL PROVIDE UPDATES WHEN WE KNOW MORE.”
