International public strategy and communications firm Gatefield has described the ban on twitter by President Muhammadu Buhari as ill- advised.
In an open letter to PMB signed by Adewunmi Emoruwa, Lead Strategist Gatefield, stated that the ban was a big mistake and should be reconsidered by PMB.
Decrying the level of joblessness in the country, the group stressed that the ban has the tendency of further depriving Nigerians of international opportunities and revenue.
‘‘Mr President, as an international public strategy and communications firm with a duly registered and tax-paying Nigerian entity, we will not hesitate to say this: your government’s decision to ban Twitter is ill-advised and a big mistake.
‘‘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’’
