Garba Shehu, the presidential media aide, has expressed that the social media platform, Twitter is an agent of division in Nigeria.
On Monday, He made this comment when he featured on Good Morning Nigeria, a program on the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), monitored by newsnigeria.ng.
Shehu justifying the suspension of Twitter stated that the platform was being used to attack national cohesion and progress.
“I think in the last few days, we are seeing a firmer determination by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to tackle artificial divisions that are standing in the way of national cohesion and progress of the country,” he said.
“As I said, Twitter is one of them, but from the pronouncement of the president, in the interview, he did on Arise TV and the one on NTA here, the speech he gave in Lagos, and the broadcast he gave, I think they are suggestive of the fact that the growing heat in the country must not continue.”
