The All Progressives Congress, APC, has Challenged Nigerians to Develop Homegrown and Competitive Social Media Applications.
In a statement, the Secretary, National Caretaker Committee of the party, Senator John Akpanudoedehe commended President Muhammadu Buhari and the patriotism demonstrated by Nigerians against the interference of Twitter in Nigeria’s internal and national security affairs.
Senator Akpanudoedehe said President Buhari had indeed stood up in defence of the sovereignty of the nation until Twitter acceded to all six demands of the Federal Government of Nigeria concerning their practices in matters concerning the nation.
He also applaud Twitter for allowing good reason and common interest to prevail by agreeing to open their office in Nigeria, a development he said was a win-win for all parties and will create jobs and gainful opportunities for Nigerians in the global digital space.
