A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kaydoe, has said whoever advised President Muhammadu Buhari to ban Twitter in Nigeria, is “his biggest enemy”.
In a tweet, hours after the news broke out, Fani-Kayode said the decision “is the most absurd and counterproductive thing” the federal government could make.
He wrote: “Suspending @Twitter from Nigeria simply because they removed a dangerous, irresponsible & insensitive tweet by @MBuhari is the most absurd and counterproductive move that the FG could have made.

“Whoever advised Mr. President to make this indefensible move is his biggest enemy.”
On Friday, the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, announced the ban on the micro-blogging website.
Mohammed cited the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence as reason for the suspension.
