On Friday, the United Kingdom Government kicked against the indefinite suspension slammed on Twitter by President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government.
Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, had explained that Nigerians carried out activities inimical to the corporate existence of Nigeria on Twitter, hence announcing its suspension.
The UK government reacted through its High Commissioner in Nigeria, Gill Atkinson who said Nigerians have the right to freedom of speech and the government must not suppress it.
“All Nigerians have the right to freedom of speech and the responsibility not to misuse that right. Any action taken by the Government must be measured, proportionate and not to suppress basic freedoms.”
