A human rights organization, One Love Foundation has asked the Federal Government of Nigeria to reverse its suspension of Twitter.
The group in a Statement made available to Jungle Journalist Media Ltd, said that the action is illegal, unconstitutional, and meant to intimidate Nigerians with fear.
It warned FG to reverse the suspension within 48 hours or face legal action at the ECOWAS Court.
Below is part of the Press Statement:
“This act by the FG without any legal and reasonable reasons/justification, are not only illegal and unconstitutional but tend to drive fear into the minds of ordinary Nigerians, that their enshrined rights to impart and receive information is not only being threatened, but looks as if is being taken away from them.
“However if our demands as stated above, are not adhered to within 48 hours, we shall be constrained to challenge this action of FG ban of www. twitter.com at the ECOWAS court and when the JUSUN strike is over at the Federal High Court also, as we hope wise counsel will prevail in this matter.
President,One Love Foundation,
