In a new video shared by OAK Tv, Lai Mohammed warned Nigerians to stop using VPN to access Twitter.

He further stated that VPNs can expose one’s entire data including bank account numbers which isn’t safe.

Lai Mohammed added that Nigerians should think of a way to create an app that can replace Twitter and it would be patronized by other countries.

Fatahu Muhammad, a member of the House of Representatives from Katsina State’s Daura Federal Constituency, has justified Twitter’s ban in Nigeria.

Mr Muhammad believes that social media ought to be regulated in order for young people to prioritize Nigeria and address real-world issues. The congressman expressed displeasure in Nigerian youth, saying that Twitter was not the meal that Nigerians needed.

The congressman stated this on Tuesday during an investigation into the suspension of Twitter held by the House joint committees on Information, National Orientation, Ethics and Values, as well as the National Security, Justice, and Commerce.

“For God sake, what is social media? Are we eating social media? Let us go back to the resources, and harvest them, and let keep this thing aside, and face the real problem in Nigeria,” he said.

He added that if Twitter was not suspended after they pulled down Buhari’s tweet, the insults to the sovereignty of Nigeria would have been more. “We should please regulate the media. If the minister did not ban Twitter on the instruction of the President, the kind of insults to the sovereignty of Nigeria from the users of Twitter would be more than what we are facing. Let us tell ourselves the truth, Nigeria comes first.

Sometimes, when I am reading tweets, I am disappointed with the youth because we are the future of Nigeria,” he added.
