Why Deeper Life Bible Church Won’t Obey Nigerian Government’s Directive On Twitter Ban— Pastor Kumuyi


The General Overseer of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi, has said the church won’t obey President Muhammadu Buhari’s ban on the microblogging platform, Twitter.

 

Nigeria’s information and culture minister Lai Mohammed had on Friday announced Twitter’s suspension in a statement by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi.



The suspension by the Nigerian government comes days after a post by President Muhammadu Buhari on the 1967 civil war was deleted by the microblogging platform.

 

The Nigerian government’s spokesman cited “the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence” as the reason for the suspension.

 

On Saturday, the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) ordered the arrest and prosecution of anyone found using the social media platform.

 

Kumuyi who defied the ban on Monday, said tweets shared on his page are targeted at a global audience in more than 5 continents and over 100 Nations.

 

“In view of the Twitter ban in Nigeria, please note that the content shared on this handle is targeted at a global audience in more than 5 continents and over 100 Nations and we share the content from any of these locations,” he tweeted. 

The same tweet was also posted on the official Twitter page of the church.
