Redeemed won’t comply with Buhari regime’s ban on Twitter: Pastor Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Monday said his Redeemed Christian Church of God will not comply with a directive banning Twitter in Nigeria.

Mr Adeboye said the prohibition of Twitter use by the Buhari regime violated international rights conventions and would be disregarded by his church members.

“The Redeemed Christian Church of God is domiciled in more than 170 Nations & Territories. The tweets here are in accordance to (sic) Article 19 of the UN universal declaration of Human Rights,” Mr Adeboye said on Twitter Monday afternoon.

Mr Adeboye’s congregation is one of the largest in Nigeria, and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has attended the church and served as a preacher for several years.

The comments came two days after Attorney-General Abubakar Malami threatened to arrest and prosecute any Nigerian caught using Twitter, saying a federal press release announcing suspension of the social media giant in the country would be enforced as a law.

The decision has continued to generate widespread outrage amongst Nigerians, with legal experts suggesting that it was essentially a suspension of the Nigerian Constitution since there was no law prohibiting the use of Twitter in Nigeria.
