The major news headline on all National Newspapers and blogs is all about the lifted Twitter ban by the Federal Government of Nigeria. The news was greeted with indifference from different quarters.

First, it's a good thing to be able to access the website without using VPN. The stress of activating VPN each time I want to check a tweet or I want to tweet is so disturbing. It's a thing of joy to be able to use the bird app again like a free person. However, the questions are still there and the same question we asked 6 months ago when the ban was announced is still on everyone's lips - " Why place the ban?"

Worthy of note is the fact that despite the ban, the number of people using the bird app from the country increased in the last year

Another question being asked is "why lift the ban now?".The answer isn't farfetched, Elections are coming and they need our votes. The year 2023 will see another general election. They need Twitter for their campaigns. But are we fooled? No!.

We live in a country where almost eight out of 10 of us are not satisfied with our government. A country with crumbling mental health institutions and schools. A country where over 60% of our population relies on some sort of assistance to get by. We are a nation of people taking loans to pay for school and then paying them back with interest once we graduate. We're a country where my generation is the first to be worse off than our parents and we can't even vote! We're the reason why politicians hold up illusions about themselves like "I will fight for you!" without telling the truth about themselves like "I've been in office for over 30 years and I have done nothing to help you make your life better".

Many things are wrong in this country, and we are not getting anywhere with the same old political band-aid solutions. Most of us do not know who we vote for, and when we do find out, we usually don't like what we have discovered.

The disregard for the masses opinion is something the present government has displayed from time to time. But what's the assurance that the other party making promises will fulfil it. We are tired of listening to promises that won’t be fulfilled. Hopefully, we will go out in masses to vote come 2023.

Please in this world of negative beliefs, we shouldn’t give up on Nigeria, we need to do something to make this country great again, don’t get involved in drugs or destruction, let’s be an example for our generation and come up with solutions to problems that wrong this country.

What about the crypto ban?

After the end sars protest the federal government placed a ban on Twitter and banks accepting cryptocurrency. Since the protest was funded by various international celebrities using cryptocurrency, they supported the youths by making donations with BTC, ETH and other cryptos. The birth of a reaction from the government, twitter and banks transacting with crypto got banned. This is known to everyone by now.

The reason given for this ban is like every other given. Baseless and just an excuse to punish the "wayward" youths. Then came the launch of the Digital currency (E-naira). Which is a stable coin. The only logical reason which isn't logical I can place on the introduction of the digital currency is to be known as the first African country to do such. Nothing else!.

We await the next announcement from the Government, maybe the crypto ban will be lifted just to please the masses ahead of the coming Election. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Thanks for Reading!

No matter what they do, the civilians will keep winning, well to me i guess banning twitter in the first place doesn't bring latest development, instead we were the one losing it.

I actually gave up on twitter ever since the ban, I don't like stress, I feel like activating the VPN every single time is a stress so I gave up at that moment but am happy I can finally use it once again.... Well for me I don't enjoy the e-naira vibe, there are alot of negative talks about it and also I heard it was removed from play store

We use P2P on binance and other apps. But care is taking when selling to avoid falling into the trap set by the government. Once there's any crypto related word in the transaction details sent to the bank, one's account will be frozen.

They will be highly mistaken if they think lifting this twitter ban will make everyone tolerant towards APC, we are much wiser now. Their next card would be to remove the ban on crypto, but that one is just dead on arrival

My dear brother, i know of the news as well but the underlying reality is that we just can't be fooled again into trooping out enmass to voting for those rotten eggs in power who may think that by lifting it, it will will change our minds and perapective towards them. Take it or leave it, anyone that does any transaction in cryptos with any bank will have their accounts suspended after the elections are over cos this buhari government just can't be sincere that i know for sure. Therefore, as far as it depends on you, never ever do any cryptos buisiness in your bank to avoid the ugly statement of "had i know".

I am very sorry for everything that is happening. It is difficult to be entering by VPN whenever you need it. I hope that everything gets better. Hopefully the elections do justice.

That's the big fact, they lift twitter ban because of their election and yes we are not full, I have always been interested in politics but the way they handle things hasn't been fair to us, and I'm sure, the crypto ban uplift will be next. I will even be glad if they do but I won't be deceived🙄😤😤
