Twitter Ban: 40 million Nigerians use the app, reverse order – US tells Buhari

President Buhari

The United States of America has continued to mount pressure on President Buhari over his Twitter ban.

This comes after Buhari ordered the micro blogging platform be banned after his tweet was deleted for going against the platform’s rule.

The message was conveyed on Wednesday by the US Mission in Nigeria via Samantha Power.

The senior diplomat is the current Administrator of the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

She said,  “There are nearly 40 M Twitter users in #Nigeria, and the country is home to Africa’s largest tech hub.

“This suspension is nothing more than state-sanctioned denial of free speech and should be reversed immediately. #KeepitOn.”

Power was the 28th US Ambassador to the United Nations from 2013 to 2017.
