'This Is The Language They Understand' - Bashir Ahmad Mocks Twitter Users

'This Is The Language They Understand' - Bashir Ahmad Mocks Twitter Users (Updated: Sunday 06th June 2021, 07:39 AM)


Bashir Ahmad, the Personal Assistant to the President on Digital and New Media, on Saturday, took to his verified Facebook page, to taunt the Nigerian Twitterati community over the suspension of the ‘operations’ of the microblogging site in the country.

“The is exactly the language they clearly understand,” he posted on Facebook.

The post attracted hundreds of comments in less than an hour, with many Nigerians lambasting Ahmad and his principal, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), for “undemocratic practices”.

A Facebook user, Kenny Christian, responded, “Power is transient, let that sink into the little part of your bain that’s is still functioning.”

Hon Pepper slammed Ahmad, “You honestly need to shut up and stop constituting nuisance on Facebook.”

“Let Boko Haram and bandits understand the language too,” another user, Laurat Galadima stated.

Ahmad’s post was a direct reference to an earlier controversial civil war post by his principal.

“Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” Buhari had said and tweeted while condemning attacks on police stations, prisons and offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission, especially in the South-East.

The President’s tweet riled some persons who felt he was insensitive to have made an analogy of the civil war. His critics subsequently reported the tweet to Twitter and the microblogging site later deleted the post with a comment, “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules”.

Consequently, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension of Twitter on Friday, citing the “persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”.

Mobile network operators also said they received a directive from the Nigerian Communications Commission to block access to Twitter in the country following the suspension by the government.

Also, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), ordered the prosecution of violators of the Twitter ban.
