Twitter ban: Sweden warns Buhari government

Sweden on Friday reacted to the indefinite suspension slammed on Twitter by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The European country in a tweet on its official handle, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to respect ‘freedom of expression.’

It noted that Nigerians have a constitutional right to exercise their freedom of expression and a right to access of information.

The tweet reads, ”Nigerians have a constitutional right to exercise their freedom of expression and a right to access of information.

”This must be respected. Safeguarding free, independent media and civic spaces for democratic voices is an important part of Sweden’s #DriveForDemocracy #TwitterBan

Just a few days after Twitter deleted a threat tweet against South East by President Buhari, the FG placed a ban on the platform.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed explained that Nigerians were using Twitter to perpetuate activities inimical to the corporate existence of Nigeria.
