Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has expressed that anyone arrested for using Virtual Private Network to access Twitter in Nigeria will end up being celebrated.
Recall that following the suspension of Twitter operations in Nigeria, Nigerians started making use of VPNs to access the platform.
Subsequently, Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami ordered the Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation to begin immediate prosecution of violators of the ban.
Reacting to the order from Malami, Fayose took to the microblogging platform, saying, “AGF Malami, I just tweeted. No shaking!”
In another post, the former governor wrote, “Good morning Nigerians. Like Buhari, no President elected by Nigerians can be a law unto himself. It is our right to use Twitter and other social media platforms and we’ll keep tweeting. I’m tweeting and so are many other Nigerians.
“Anyone they arrest will only end up being celebrated. No one should be moved by empty threats of arrest. Certainly, what has a beginning must have an end. This dictatorial govt came and shall definitely go. No shaking! Good days ahead.”
