Desmond Elliot to Buhari: Many Nigerian youths need Twitter for legitimate businesses


Filmmaker and politician, Desmond Elliot, has expressed displeasure at the Federal Government’s ban on Twitter.

He said it was wrong because many Nigerian youths used it for legitimate businesses.

He noted in a Twitter message on Saturday:, “I want to admonish our government to always remember that the people’s right to express themselves freely must not be compromised. This ban, no matter the reasons proffered tramples upon our fundamental rights as people.”

He said, “In a democratic society like ours, we must weigh the economic and social impact of this ban on the populace — especially our teeming youths and entrepreneurs who depend solely on this platform to carry out their legitimate business.

“In the past, our government have shown the required goodwill to stand on side of the people even when it’s not too convenient for them to do so. I believe that this won’t be an exception. I want to appeal to the government to reconsider this ban in the interest of our people and our country at large.”
