actress Regina Daniels, Ned Nwoko has
disclosed that he is in support of the Twitter ban in the country.
Speaking at a June 12 lecture organised by the Correspondents Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Abuja Council, Nwoko stated that social media needs to be controlled and regulated in countries.
“On the current issue with Twitter in Nigeria, I wholeheartedly support the position of the Federal Government.

The former lawmaker further added that social media platforms must pay taxes to
governments and provide employment to some Nigerians.
