Don’t spare anyone who violates Twitter terms – Traders’ union president to FG

The Federal Government has been advised to take measures against anyone who uses Twitter to disparage Nigeria or shows it to the world as a lawless country.

The President of the Amalgamated National Traders Union, Dr Bature AbdulAziz, speaking in Kano, said it was high time President Muhammadu Buhari sits up against those who see Nigeria as a lawless country.

“In the first place, I will like to congratulate the government for standing doggedly against Twitter after suspending its operations, until they agreed to accept all terms and regulations placed on it by the authorities”.

“I want to believe that the government would not jettison its harsh position on the social media, not only Twitter but all of them and as well any Nigerian who continues to join the bandwagon of attacking the nation.

Dr Bature AbdulAziz said Nigeria was still a sovereign nation and that anybody who tried to think or act otherwise must be redirected using any means as the country is greater than anyone
