Nigerians can now be prosecuted for sending tweets following ban on Twitter

The Nigerian government has ordered federal prosecutors to arrest and prosecute users of the Twitter app, after a ban on the social media company took effect on Friday.

Nigeria's Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, issued the directive Saturday in a statement signed on his behalf by his spokesman, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu.

"Malami directed the Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation (DPPF) at the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, to swing into action and commence in earnest the process of prosecution of violators of the Federal Government De-activation of operations of Twitter in Nigeria," it read.

The Attorney General directed the country's communications regulator, NCC, and the Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy to collaborate with prosecutors "to ensure the speedy prosecution of offenders without any further delay."

I assume fraudulent e-mails are still okay.

1. Fraudulent e-mails is their version of international commerce. It is just good business.

I didn't even know that they had Republicans in Nigeria. The next thing we will hear is that they are banning abortions.

2. Every country is made up of liberals and conservatives, doesn't matter their skin color, ethnicity

or anything else.

And they compete for power ... everywhere.

These are the two main 'brands' of human beings.

I'm 99% convinced it's largely genetic.

You can pick pretty much any country and talk to someone who grew up there, and ask if there's a problem with racism in their country. They'll either say 'yes there is', or they'll say 'not really, no' ... and then those people will show you they're racists if you hang out w/them long enough.
