The United Kingdom Government has condemned the indefinite suspension the federal government slammed on Twitter.

Reacting through its High Commission in Nigeria, Gill Atkinson on Friday, the UK government stated that Nigerians have right to freedom of speech and the government must not suppress it.

“All Nigerians have the right to freedom of speech and the responsibility not to misuse that right.

“Any action taken by Government must be measured, proportionate and not to suppress basic freedoms.”
Meanwhile, Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, had explained that Nigerians were using Twitter to perpetuate activities inimical to the corporate existence of Nigeria, hence announcing its suspension.
