This is a column by Ken Henshaw, Executive Director of We The People. WITTY THOUGHT is a brisk review of situations in Nigeria with intent to revive social consciousness.
People who support the Twitter ban in Nigeria generally fall into two categories.
The first are principally of Northern Nigeria extraction and die hard supporters of any and every action of the President, no matter how callous.
The second are members of the APC. This category foolishly believe ‘political loyalty’ means supporting everything done by the President even when the Party wasn’t consulted in those actions.
They are the same people who believe Pantami should remain Minister, and that Buhari is doing an excellent job as President. These ones can type 10 pages of illogical junk to justify a presidential goof.
They hope one day, their stupidity will be noticed and rewarded.
This first category are fundamentalist and unreasonable. Don’t try debating with them.
The second category are just hungry … have pity on them.
This view is strictly mine.
