Recall that earlier today that the Federal Government via the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed announced the suspension of microblogging and social networking platform Twitter in Nigeria.
Federal Government has also directed the National Broadcasting Commission to immediately start the process of licensing all OTT and social media operations in Nigeria.
In a statement titled, ‘FG Suspends Twitter’s Operations in Nigeria’, read in part; “The Federal Government has suspended, indefinitely, the operations of the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria.”
And following this Nigerians were quick to dig up a tweet made 7 years ago by a Nigerian lady predicting how Buhari will suspend Twitter and other media platforms.
The lady with handle @Art_of_Achalugo had made the prediction in 2014, before President Buhari was elected for his first term in office
She said “there would be a systemic expunging of media platforms, starting with Twitter, after which DSTV will follow and other trtraditional media except for NTA, Let him make mistake and win. Twitter will go first. Then DSTV. Then all channels but NTA, Followed by dress code, curfew..”
