The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Thursday, said that the Federal Government’s decision to suspend microblogging and social network platform, Twitter, in Nigeria was a tough one.

Mohammed, who spoke at the meeting of Information Managers of APC Government in Lagos on Thursday, said the decision to suspend Twitter was tough because most Nigerian youths use the platform for business.

 

We recall that the Federal Government suspended the operation of Twitter in Nigeria, accusing the platform of allowing contents capable of threatening the corporate existence of the country.

 

Despite the ban, some Nigerians have continued to access the medium via the use of Virtual Private Network (VPN).

 

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday appointed a Federal Government’s team to engage with Twitter over the suspension of its operations in the country.

 

Mohammed said, “It [Twitter ban in Nigeria] was a tough decision to take, considering that many of our youths also use the platform for business. Such is the challenge posed by social media.

 

“At its request, the government has agreed to engage with Twitter and, hopefully, we can both chart a path forward without compromising our national interest. While many have accused us of stifling the press with the ban, we say Twitter is just one of many social media platforms being used by Nigerians.

 

“WhatsApp, which is most used by Nigerians, is there. And there is Facebook, Instagram, Google hangout, etc.”

  4. The Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Oyo State, has matriculated no fewer than 7,500 new students into its various courses.

    The acting Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Mojeed Liasu, made this disclosure while speaking during the matriculation ceremony held at Ogbomoso on Wednesday.

    Liasu, while addressing the students, urged them to shun all antisocial tendencies and behaviours. He encouraged them to remember that the future of their academic career has commenced, urging them to set their priorities right.

    He advised the students to be security conscious.

    He pleaded with the students to report any suspicious activities to the Dean of Student Affairs, security officers around the school, or staff of the university for immediate action.

    “The primary reason why you are a member of this community is to advance your academic career.

    “Every other engagement is extra-curricular and should be so handled. You are to also note that this university offers rounded education.

    “There are good student clubs and societies that promote wholesome development. Such are the groups you are expected to associate with.

    “You are to have nothing to do with groups that are cult-inclined. Security as you know is our collective responsibility, and it starts with you and me.

    “The university is non-residential, security surveillance has been deployed to all the areas where students live in town, to monitor your activities and to discourage undesirable groupings,” he said.

    “Like every community, there are rules, regulations and laws that govern the conduct and behaviour of all members of the community.

    “Let me again sound a note of warning here, keeping this University free of all forms of cultism is a task that we handle with all seriousness.

    “With its motto of Excellence, Integrity and Service, all operations of the university are geared towards the training of the total person.

    “Your participation in student activities at the Departmental, Faculty, College and University levels should make for peace and pro

    gress of the university.”
