Reacting to the ban of Twitter by the Nigerian government, Adetona berates such decision and said it was unfortunate considering the high increase of unemployment rate in the country from 27.1% to 33.3% according to the Nigeria Bureau of Statistics released earlier this year.

According to him, Twitter is one of the platforms that the majority of Nigeria’s youthful population leverage for the promotion of their small businesses. The viral nature of the micro blogging platform is unrivaled how quick tweets get engagement and sometimes turn to a national trending issue.

Since the ban was announced on June 5th, Adetona said Nigerian leaders’ body language has shown that they don’t care about the micro-blogging ban effects while the platform has been very helpful for raising awareness for business and social causes in Nigeria.
