Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has averred that the suspension on Twitter has come as a blessing in disguise as it has stopped the spread of fake news orchestrated by the PDP.
According to Garba Shehu, representatives of the PDP should not be entrusted with national leadership of our country any time soon as they do not have any good intention for the country. Garba reacted to the PDP governors’ forum where they made some accusation against the government.
Garba said: “The PDP grieves over the Federal Government’s action over Twitter – for it represents the curtailment of their ability to use the platform to spread fake news and invented stories to the detriment of community and good-neighbourliness between the peoples of Nigeria,”
“The PDP Governors propose no solutions to any of our nation’s challenges in the face of COVID and global economic downturn: instead, they grasp for more money and mourn their lack of access to social media to spread falsehoods and hate.
“Their statement is evidence, if any were needed, as to why the President and the APC ended the PDP’s one-party rule in 2015, were re-elected by an increased margin in 2019, and why their winning trend is set to continue far into the future.”
“When the governors claim a lack of federal institutions’ money pouring into their States’ coffers is an affront to democracy, constitutionalism, and federalism, they fail to mention the ugliest trend against the integrity of Nigeria comes by own hands with their refusal to support the Federal Government’s earnest desire to reinstate the local government as the third tier and finding a lasting solution to farmer-herder conflicts costing the nation lives and livestock,”
