The minister for information Lai Mohammed has blamed unpatriotic Nigerians for being the reason why social networking Twitter, decided to make Ghana its African headquarters. The minister stated this while speaking in an interview with newsmen in Abuja today.

Lai MohammedLai Mohammed said, “The natural expectation would have been for Nigeria to be the hub for Twitter especially in this part of Africa, even with the fact that we have 25.4 million Twitter users in Nigeria, against eight million users in Accra. So, clearly the decision was not a commercial and business one. “But I think Twitter has the prerogative and the exclusive right as to where to site its headquarters. But I hope that this will serve as a lesson to Nigerians.”

“The reasons cited by Twitter for citing the headquarters in Accra, Ghana is that Accra is a champion of democracy and there is rule of law in Accra, among other reasons. “This is what you get when you de-market your own country. This will teach a lot of us a lesson that we have no country than Nigeria.” “We are not saying that you should not criticize the country but be fair and patriotic. When you destroy your own house, where are you going to live?

Lai Mohammed“You can imagine the kind of job opportunities that siting that headquarters in Nigeria would have created, the kind of visibility it would have given Nigeria but we destroyed it. It is what the insiders say about their country that the outsider will use to judge and condemn the country.
