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.

Dear Aisha Buhari China also kills their corrupt Politicians, we would love Nigeria to start practising that first. Your Aide stole over N2bn, where he saw that money only you know. https://t.co/FkPwdtkMPP

With the Aisha Buhari comment on China’s ability to control Social Media, it points to my long-held belief that the #SocialMediaBill originated from the presidency. I always knew it was an agenda for absolute dictatorship.

One minute Aisha Buhari is acting like she’s with the masses, the next minute she’s supporting the social media bill and playing solicitor for Yahaya Bello.
Who the hell is this woman? 🤔

Aisha Buhari ain’t that smart init.
She wants the Nigerian govt to copy China’s social media regulation strategy but she refused to ask that we also copy China’s Anti-Corruption law that allows corrupt political office holders be annihilated.
Nonsense upon ingredient oshi 😒😏

If China can do this, if China can do that!
We can’t copy China to become a country that produces electronics,
We can’t copy China to become a super power.
We only want to copy China when it comes to repressive policies.
The Aisha Buhari delusions.

Hi Aisha Buhari, What China did that really helped their country was banning porn and all sorts of immorality out of their internet space. That’s what you should do not find a way to suppress your opposition with a deceitful bill. We should be able to criticize the gov when wrong

Dear Aisha Buhari, get back to the kitchen & remain there…

after using social media to promise us $1 = 1 Naira, you now want to control us for not delivering your promises.
Chinese Govt that controls the internet they’ve delivered, Mrs Aisha Buhari what has your husband delivered since he won elections?

What really really pains me more as a proud Nigerian is the fact that, Aisha Buhari, her kids & our leaders travel & even live in the abroad & never will they ask themselves, how can we make our Nigeria be like this abroad sef?
Crazy heartbreaking country
