Buhari is a puppet. That is why an ordinary government appointee can talk to him. firstladyship Very surprising that western countries think Nigeria is a democracy. Maybe cowcracy I can understand, but democracy? Hell no!!!
In other words, what we practice in Nigeria is not democracy. Simple! It’s a pity that just 6 years of APC rule, our democracy is called to question. I’m online. Let follow each other. I promise to follow back immediately Non- of you made meaningful comments to the fact that “Social Media “ need to be regulated just like other media in order to guide against abuse of use to spread fake news.

Pls watch and retweet 🙏🏿🙏🏿my freestyle. Thanks simonkolawole omaakatugba DavidOlusoga davido It’s obvious that if our president is given visa ban today, he will retaliate by banning all Nigerians from traveling out of the country.

Make the fossil dey grandstand. He doesn't have any wise person around him to speak the truth to him. 🐄 don't listen to instructions. The regime of Dictator MBuhari & ProfOsinbajo supports terrorisms & banditry.They commit crimes against humanity by using HQNigerianArmy & PoliceNG to harass, terrorize & kill innocent 🇳🇬 citizens in cold blood! They’re on a genocidal mission in Benue, SW & against the Igbos.

Forward new sharing formula to National Assembly, Reps tell Buhari - Punch NewspapersThe most widely read newspaper in Nigeria Waste of time as he aint got none. Stop time wasting people are being killed daily. 6yrs country is drowned in quicksand please do us this favor stop showing Buhari's picture. I beg u please Hope you won't be arrested and prosecuted by Malami for defying his boss's suspension on Twitter?
Whatever this man says is from Biden. Our super Tucanoes are still with them. Nigeria ban twitter and people are citing the names of undemocratic countries. Please, what are we practicing self as those countries have the name of what they are practicing? Hear that Manique This thing right here is why I hate Nigeria's journalism. Never accurate. This wasn't wat inspired the shutting down of Twitter. Even though, that's the excuse the APC dictatorship govt said. What happened was, Buhari's post been taken down from Twitter. He got pissed abt it.
Government of Nigeria has the power to ban anything with their territorial jurisdiction. Over the years many US states governments had taken Facebook and Twitter to court on misconduct and no accused or condemn those States. The mad man is a dictator I regret voting him 3times Igbo nation wake up. Your Youth population is being targeted by Northern Jihad apologists for annihilation in the guise of fighting IPOB & ESN as they call it. Igbo Nation must start a campaign for arm embargo / sanctions to be placed against Jihad military of Nigeria. Retweet.
Just waste of time..man won't hear anything..his mind is hardened. Louder pls It's not only social media restriction that has no place in democracy. What about the government killing it's citizens with the security agents? Democracy in Nigeria is opposite what the democracy is. As if he will listen
