Aisha Buhari Berated on Twitter Over Comment in Support of Social Media Censorship

Wife of the Nigerian President, Aisha Buhari, has suffered a backlash on social media for voicing her support for the social media bill which seeks to censor comments on social media.

Aisha had at the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs General Assembly and National Executive Council in Abuja said China regulated the social media of its over one billion citizens and Nigeria should be able to control its own population which is about 200 million.

She said, “On this issue of social media, you cannot just sit in the comfort of your house and tweet that the Vice President has resigned. It is a serious issue. If China can control over 1.3 billion people on social media, I see no reason why Nigeria cannot attempt controlling only 180 million people.”

On Saturday morning, Aisha was trending on Twitter as Nigerians expressed their dismay over her comment.
