The former member of the Delta state House of Assembly announced this while speaking at a June 12 lecture organized by the Correspondents Chapel of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) Abuja Council.
According to him, “On the current issue with Twitter in Nigeria, I wholeheartedly support the position of the Federal Government.
There should be a measure of control and regulation for social media in countries where they have a presence.”
Buttressing his reason for his support of the Twitter ban in Nigeria, Nwoko stressed that the social media platforms must pay taxes to governments and provide employment for some Nigerians for the over 100 million population that subscribed to their services
However, people are reacting to this as many have said that the politician is scared of one of his wife’s being snatched on Twitter. While others have openly condemned his support for the Twitter ban made by the Buhari administration.
