Twitter Ban: Buhari Is Low-Budget Hitler, Creating Room For Anarchy – Analysts Steven James

A public affairs analyst in Abuja, Steven James has described Buhari as a “low budget Hitler” who wants to gag freedom of speech in Nigeria.

Infoexpert24 recalls that Federal Government on Friday 4th June, 2021 suspended, indefinitely, Twitter’s Operations in Nigeria.

James lamented that the president and his All Progressives Congress, APC, got into power through the use of criticism but now finds it difficult to accept same from Nigerians.

According to Dailypost, he said: “Should we still call this a democracy? How can Buhari’s government ban Twitter? This government is the one giving room for people to create anarchy in this country.

“Buhari and APC came into power by criticising Jonathan and if my memory serves me right, Jonathan was never this high-handed.

“Our president is just a low-budget hitler who is determined to destroy this country with his hands.”

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed announced the suspension of Twitter on Friday during a press conference in Abuja.

Explaining reason for the ban, Lai Mohammed had said Nigerians were persistently using the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.

The action taken by the Nigerian government now puts the country in the class of North Korea, Iran, China and Turkmenistan that banned access to Twitter.

The decision to ban Twitter was taken just a few days after the site deleted an offensive tweet from Buhari threatening the Southeast with war.

Buhari, while condemning the attacks on Police stations and offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in the Southeast had said his government would respond in a language they would understand.

The president also said ‘individuals or groups who want to destroy his government will receive the shock of their lives.”

Against the backdrop of this tweet, Nigerians called for the president’s account to be taken down by the platform.
