Nigerian Billionaire Businessman, Ned Nwoko has said he is in support of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ban on Twitter.

Nwoko gave the announcement while speaking at a June 12 lecture organized by the Correspondents Chapel of the Nigeria 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.”

Emphasizing on 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.
