Adamu Garba, a former presidential candidate has warned twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, not to interfere in Nigerian politics after he threw his support behind EndSARS campaigners in the country.
Recall Dorsey had shared support for the protests and CEO advised donors to make use of cryptocurency especially after the recent scare by the CBN to block other channels like flutterwave and so on.
Garba stated that the demands of the people had been met already and that the protests were simply causing political agitations.
The tech boss said that the CEO’s move would bring more traffic to his app but that shouldn’t be a reason for home to aid the protesters as he claimed it wouldn’t foster peace and prosperity in the country.
He threatened to sue Dorsey if he didn’t withdraw his support.
@jack It’ll do you a lot more good if you stay away from Nigerian Politics. You should know that the so-called #EndSARS protest have transformed into political agitation, capable of breaking law & order in our country. You should not be a moral & financial sponsor to this.
This is Nigeria, most of the demands initially presented was attended to by the responsible authorities. SARS no longer exist in this country.
Your support for a disbanded entity was a needless interference. We cannot allow killings again in Nigeria in the name of protests.
I understand that this may play well to your business, you have more content, more people & more activity on your platform, but to us is about life, peace & security of our dear Country, we cannot allow you to be part of the people sponsoring disorder. We need peace & prosperity.
I can see you are even sharing a link for people to donate money for this protest, an event capable of escalation beyond our already overstretched security management.
If this protest continued to evolved into disorder (hopefully not). As a Nigerian citizen, we’ll meet in court
Thank you. @jack
