General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has reiterated his commitment to continue using Twitter despite the ban by Muhammadu Buhari’s administration last Friday.
Adeboye via his Twitter handle @PastorEAAdeboye on Monday said: ”The Redeemed Christian Church of God is domiciled in more than 170 Nations & Territories..”
He explained, ”The tweets here are in accordance with Article 19 of the UN universal declaration of Human Rights.”
Recall that Buhari had through the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed Friday announced the ban on Twitter in Nigeria. This announcement did not sit well with Nigerians as many in defiance switched to VPN to access their Twitter handle.
Consequently, Nigeria’s Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, issued the directive Saturday in a statement signed on his behalf by his spokesman, Dr Umar Jibrilu Gwandu.
