Following the ban of Twitter in Nigeria, citizens have taken to the usage of the Virtual Private Network VPN to access their Twitter application.
However, the Minister for information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed has stated that everyone using VPN is exposing his or her personal data.
He stated that the person’s account details are being exposed too, and that if citizens think they are deceiving the president, or himself, they are lying.
He said Nigerians should be resourceful and come up with applications that can replace Twitter in Nigeria.
This is coming weeks after the use of Twitter was banned in Nigeria, because Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s war tweet.
