Gatefield has said that the government’s decision to ban Twitter was ill-advised and a big mistake.
The international public strategy and communications firm made this known in a statement issued yesterday by
Adewunmi Emoruwa, Lead Strategist.
“Several Nigerian individuals and entities in the digital communications sector have already had contracts with global organisations that they serve terminated. Mr President, our country needs more revenue and more opportunities. The citizens need jobs. This decision robs us of these opportunities.
“We play by the rules. Since no Nigerian law criminalises the use of any social media platform for expression, communications, and business, we will continue to use the Twitter platform to get our work done.
“We understand the consequences of telling the truth. But, unfortunately, the cost of indifference is much more than we can afford to bear.”
