Pastor Kumuyi ‘defies’ FG’s twitter ban


In what can be viewed as defying Federal Government’s ban on Nigerians residing in Nigeria from using twitter, founder and General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry Worldwide, Pastor William Kumuyi, has taken to the microblogging platform.

Twitter drew suspension from the federal government after it deleted tweet posted by President Muhammadu Buhari, which bordered on running roughshod over some Nigerians, who are critical of his administration and (the President) using the word civil war.

The government also banned Nigerians in the country from using the microblogging platform, a ban that is being circumvented by several tweeps with Virtual Private Network, VPN. The latter allowed them to change their locations online to that of other countries despite being in Nigeria

Kumuyi in a tweet he posted said his church would continue to use twitter given that it has branches across 100 countries and five continents.

His tweet: “In view of the Twitter ban in Nigeria, please note that the content shared on this handle is targeted at a global audience in more than five continents and over 100 nations and we share the content from any of these locations.”
