The caucus’ leader, Ndudi Elumelu, noted in statement posted on Friday, January 14 that the constitution ensures Nigerians’ freedom of speech and expression, including using social media tools like Twitter to do so.

 

According to the congressman, in democratic society, this freedom of expression should not be susceptible to partisan permission or restriction.

The statement was as follows:

 

“That is why at the wake of the ban on the use of Twitter in Nigeria in June 2021, the Minority Caucus in the House of Representatives forcefully condemned the decision as a provocative, obnoxious, and unjustifiable clampdown on the rights of Nigerians which also showed the APC government’s intolerance and aversion to the views, opinions, and aspirations of Nigerian citizens, especially the youths on matters of state.

“It was also in the light of that that the Minority Caucus in the National Assembly stood by the law and charged Nigerians to continue using Twitter irrespective of the unconstitutional ban since they would not be contravening any known law in Nigeria or any international statutes.

“Our caucus holds that the declaration of a lift on the ban on Twitter amounts to regulatory approval on freedom of speech, which is completely unknown to our laws. The APC government should rather be apologising to Nigerians for infringing on their rights as well as for the huge economic losses recorded as a result of the ban.”

The caucus also praised Nigerians for their resilience, innovations, and opposition to the APC government’s “suppression,” urging the APC-led administration to be open to the views of Nigerians and make modifications for the welfare of the country. They also stated that they will not give up the struggle for people’s rights at any time.
