#TwitterBan: Like Adeboye, Pastor Kumuyi Says Deeper Life Church Can Tweet From Anywhere
The General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry Worldwide, Pastor William Kumuyi has reacted to the Federal Government’s indefinite suspension slammed on microblogging platform, Twitter’s operations in the country.
Kumuyi’s reaction was conveyed in a tweet via the church’s official Twitter handle on Monday.
He said that the church has branches across 100 countries and five continents and therefore can tweet from anywhere in the world.
“In view of the Twitter ban in Nigeria, please note that the content shared on this handle is targeted at a global audience in more than five continents and over 100 nations and we share the content from any of these locations,” the tweet read.
Kumuyi’s reaction mirrored that of his colleague at The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
“The Redeemed Christian Church of God is domiciled in more than 170 nations and territories. The tweets here are in accordance with Article 19 of the United Nations universal declaration of human rights,” Adeboye had tweeted earlier.
In a Friday statement through the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the government had cited the “persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence” for its decision to wield the big stick.
The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami SAN had threatened anyone still tweeting from Nigeria in spite of the suspension with prosecution.
