Trump congratulates Buhari for suspending Twitter, encourages more countries to ban the platform.

1 Mins read

Trump’s congratulatory message comes days after Nigeria suspended Twitter indefinitely last Friday.

Former US President, Donald Trump has congratulated the Nigerian government for suspending Twitter activities in the country.


“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?”

The statement was posted to Twitter by reporters from several News outlets because Trump himself is banned from that platform, as well as Facebook, over the deadly Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol by his supporters. 

Trump’s congratulatory message comes days after Nigeria suspended Twitter indefinitely last Friday.

The Nigerian government made the decision after Twitter deleted Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet for violating its abusive behaviour policy and several calls by Nigerians to take it down.
