The Minority Caucus in the House of Representatives has condemned in its entirety, the suspension of Twitter in Nigeria by the Federal Government.
The Caucus described the suspension as a clear violation of freedom of speech and other democratic rights and tenets as provided by the 1999 Constitution.
In a statement issued today by the House Minority Leader, Dr Ndudi Elumelu, the Reps Minority Caucus further described the suspension as provocative, obnoxious and unjustifiable.
Hon. Elumelu said the Minority Caucus is disturbed that the suspension of Twitter in the Country came after the social media platform deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s controversial Tweets.
He said response by the Federal Government has raised further concerns over the APC-led administration’s disturbing rating on issues of political intolerance, abuse of rights and violation of rules in the country.
