Presidency accuses PDP governors of using Twitter to spread fake news

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

PDP governors described President Buhari’s ban on Twitter ban as a descent into dictatorship and a ridiculous move capable of worsening Nigeria’s unemployment woes.

The presidency has reacted angrily to the PDP governors.

Garba Shehu the president’s spokesperson in a statement revealed that Twitter’s operations were suspended in Nigeria, because the platform had become a vehicle for the propagation of fake news by PDP governors and politicians.

The statement in part read, “And, of course, the PDP grieve over the federal government’s action over Twitter – for it represents the curtailment of their ability to use the platform to spread fake news and invented stories to the detriment of community and good-neighbourliness between the peoples of Nigeria.

“Their statement is evidence, if any were needed, as to why the president and the APC ended the PDP’s one-party rule in 2015, were re-elected by an increased margin in 2019, and why their winning trend is set to continue far into the future.”
