KanyiDaily recalls that Twitter had on Wednesday deleted Buhari’s tweet which threatened to deal with “pro-Biafran secessionist” in “the language they will understand”.
Twitter said the offensive tweet violated the social media company’s abusive behaviour policy, leading to a 12-hour suspension of President Buhari’s account.
Reacting to the development on Thursday, Adamu Garba said Twitter has no right to take down President Buhari’s tweet, adding that the micro-blogging site should be banned in Nigeria.
“Twitter has no right to infuse into our local political affairs. It’s a company not a government,” he tweeted.
“By removing our democratically elected President’s speech to the people of Nigeria, Twitter needs to be shut down from Nigeria’s internet space. Twitter needs to get out of Nigeria.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Adamu Garba had in 2020 instituted a $1 billion lawsuit against Twitter founder, Jack Dorsey, over his alleged role in the #EndSARS protests which led to violence and loss of lives in some parts of the country.
