Former US President, Donald Trump applauds Nigeria government for banning Twitter says more country should follow the footsteps

Former US President, Donald Trump has congratulated the Nigerian government for suspending the operation of Micro blogging website, Twitter in the country.

His congratulatory message was contained in a statement posted on Twitter by many media outlets since Trump himself have been sanction as well as Facebook, over the deadly Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol by his supporters. 

The statement read as

“Congratulations to the country of Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their President. More COUNTRIES should ban Twitter and Facebook for not allowing free and open speech – all voices should be heard,” Trump said in a statement.

The Republican politician also encouraged other countries to follow in Nigeria’s footsteps and ban Twitter and Facebook before stating that he should have banned Twitter and Facebook when he was in the White House, but claimed he was discouraged by Mark Zuckerberg.

“In the meantime, competitors will emerge and take hold. Who are they to dictate good and evil if they themselves are evil? Perhaps I should have done it while I was President,” Trump added. “But Zuckerberg kept calling me and coming to the White House for dinner telling me how great I was. 2024?”

Trump’s congratulatory message comes days after Nigeria suspended Twitter indefinitely last Friday follow the decision of the Micro-bloggging site to delete a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari for violating its abusive behaviour policy which ever since then have generated reactions from different part of the world
