Again, Falana criticizes FG over Twitter suspension

Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has again criticized the Federal Government(FG) for suspending the operation of microblogging and social network platform, Twitter in Nigeria.

He also faulted the FG’s recent decision to hold talks with Twitter.

Falana said that the decision to meet and dialogue should have been planned before the suspension was done, insisting that the FG was putting the cart before the horse.

He said, “The Federal Government meeting with Twitter is a good development, but in many instances, they put the cart before the horse. I feel this should have been done earlier. The government protested when it was dissatisfied with certain developments.

“This kind of meeting would have been called much earlier and the embarrassment and inconvenience that Nigerians were subjected to would have been totally avoided. But I think it is a good development that both sides are going to meet.” The human rights lawyer pointed out.

It would be recalled that the Federal Government suspended the operation of Twitter in Nigeria accusing the platform of allowing contents capable of threatening the corporate existence of the country.

Despite the ban, some Nigerians have howei continued to access Twitter via the use of Virtual Private Network (VPN).
