The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the unabating misrule of the President Muhammadu Buhari Presidency pushed Twitter to take its African Headquarters to Ghana instead of Nigeria.
The opposition party in a statement said Twitter’s preference for Ghana over Nigeria was occasioned by inconsistent economic policies, obnoxious suppression of free speech, stifling of online freedom and open internet by the Buhari administration.
It stated that this is in addition to infrastructural decay, massive corruption and manifest failure of the Buhari administration to address the escalated insecurity brought upon our nation by their incompetent watch.
“Indeed the decision by Twitter to by-pass Nigeria to locate its African operational base in Ghana is another sad commentary of how our nation, which was hitherto a global investment hub under the PDP, has now been so degraded in global economic competitiveness under the APC,” the PDP stated.
It argued that with an estimated 39.6 million twitter subscribers in Nigeria, which is bigger than the population of Ghana, Nigeria ought to be the destination, but for the anti-people policies of the APC led administration.
