Lagos State Governor Sanwo-Olu reveals FG did not consider economic impact of Twitter ban

There is news about the ban on microblogging site Twitter by the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The latest to chime in on the ban is Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Sanwo-Olu on Monday, June 7 in a chat with Arise TV regarding the ban said the federal government could have handled it better and considered the economic impact of the ban.

Sanwo-Olu said; “Federal government can handle this a lot better. Because of the number of eCommerce, the number of youths doing digital stuff on the internet, and we cannot throw that away and say it’s not happening. I believe there could be a lot of restraint and better management from both sides.

“On both sides, there are issues that can be resolved between Twitter and the government and I think what they’ve done is not a ban but a suspension like they said, so in the period of suspension let us sit down.

“If we have 40 million users of that micro-blogger and another country has five million and they chose to take their investment to a country that have five million compared to a country with 40 million. It speaks to the reason we need to have that conversation with them. Probably if they have an office here things would have been done a lot quicker and better.”
