Lai Mohammed accuses Nigerians over Twitter’s choice of Ghana as its African Headquarters

The minister buttressed that the #ENDSARS protest has done more harm than good

In an interview today, April 15, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, blamed unpatriotic Nigerians for the transfer of Twitter Africa’s headquarters to Ghana.

Lai Mohammad asserted that Nigerians disparagement of the country was why Twitter ended up choosing Ghana as its headquarters, despite the fact that Nigeria has more Twitter users than Ghana.

Remember that one of the reasons Ghana was chosen as the headquarters for Twitter Africa was because she is a champion of democracy and the rule of law.

Lai Mohammed also chastised Nigerians while arriving at a point that the negative comments and bogus news which was spread during the #ENDSARS protest added to the decision of Twitter to situate its Africa headquarters in Ghana.

This is what you get when you de-market your country. The media is more to blame for this which most times exaggerate the challenges in the country. At no time was this worse than during the EndSARS protest when Nigerian journalists both traditional and new media were trying to outdo themselves in painting Nigeria as a hell where nobody should live.

He further elongated by saying

When they all conspired to vilify not just the government but the people of Nigeria. We are not saying that you should not criticize the country but be fair and patriotic. When you destroy your own house, where are you going to live? You can imagine the kind of job opportunities that siting that headquarters in Nigeria would have generated, the kind of visibility it would have given Nigeria but we destroyed it.
