Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, made this known on “Politics Nationwide,’’ a Radio Nigeria call-in program.
He said it was unfair to conclude that Twitter was suspended in the country because President Muhammadu Buhari’s message was deleted.
He accused Twitter of consistently offering its platform to promote agendas that were inimical to the corporate existence of Nigeria, adding that the government was unambiguous that the action was taken because the platform was being used to promote the views of those who wanted to destabilize the clime.
“Twitter has become a platform of choice for a particular separatist promoter.
Every attempt to persuade Twitter to deny its platform to this separatist leader was not taken serious,’’ he said.
Nnamdi Kanu had vowed that any soldier sent to the Southeast by the Nigerian Government will die.
