Swedish Government Issues Stern Advice To Nigeria On Twitter Ban

 Sweden has reacted to the indefinite suspension of Twitter by the Federal Government of Nigeria.


In a brief communique shared on Twitter, the European country urged the Buhari-led government to respect ‘freedom of expression’ and the rights of the citizens.

According to the tweet, Nigerians have a constitutional right to exercise their freedom of expression and a right to access information, a right that must be respected.

Sweden further noted that safeguarding free, independent media and civic spaces for democratic voices is an important part of its drive for democracy.
