Adamu Garba has said he is happy President Buhari banned Twitter in Nigeria because it serves as online machine for IPOB.
NEWS MAIL NG reports that the former presidential aspirant said Twitter loves and supports secessionist groups than the Federal Government.
Adamu Garba said this while reacting to Buhari’s ban on Twitter in Nigeria on Channels TV on Friday evening.
The ban took effect midnight yesterday but many Nigerians still have access to the micro-blogging site via VPN.
Read his words below:
“Yes, I’m happy. Seriously. It is clearly showing that actions cannot just happen without consequences.
Twitter, if you studied their move for the last two years, they have been more of an anti-Nigerian force, for the destruction of Nigeria than actually a platform that’s supposed to advocate for freedom of expression of Nigeria.
“Because if you look at what happened with the removal of some of the tweets of the president, I can’t see very strong or vile word than that of Nnamdi Kanu that was left to still be available on Twitter.
“We have a very serious crisis in the south-east, where these guys are destroying fundamental institutions of Nigerian democracy, INEC offices, police institutions and courts.
“They are killing people on the streets, destroying people’s properties, and then Twitter is behind them.
“I think Twitter is like a kind of IPOB online machine because what they do more is to support IPOB much more than the government. IPOB, everyone knows, they are anti-Nigeria. Their target is to destroy Nigeria.”
