The Nigerian government announced the suspension of Twitter’s operation in the country on June 4 following the deletion of President Buhari’s controversial tweet.
However, many powerful Nigerian ministers are still tweeting despite federal government’s ban. Here are 6 widely known men of God in Nigeria that have disobeyed this order:
1. Pastor Adeboye
Pastor Adeboye is the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. The man of God has tweeted several times despite the ban. Pastor Adeboye probably saw Nigerians’ reactions to this so he explained why he had to continue using the microblogging platform yesterday.
2. Apostle Johnson Suleman
Apostle Johnson Suleman is the general overseer and senior pastor of the Omega Fire Ministries International. The man of God who cannot do without praying for his followers online also ignored the ban as he dropped prophecies for the new week just as his custom is.
3. Pastor Kumuyi
Pastor Kumuyi is the general overseer of the Deeper Life Bible Church. The holiness preacher is well known for his respect for government’s rules and non-involvement in politics.
After the Twitter ban, Pastor Kumuyi still used the platform to share deep teachings from the Bible with his followers. Pastor Kumuyi later explained in another tweet that the messages are shared from other nations of the world.
4. Bishop Oyedepo
The founder and presiding bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide has made several prophetic declarations on his Twitter
page after the ban.
5. Pastor Sam Adeyemi
Pastor Sam Adeyemi is the founder and senior pastor of the Daystar Christian Centre, Lagos. The renowned motivational speaker and author still took to his Twitter page despite the ban to encourage his followers with inspiring words. Here is his tweet below;
6. Pastor Paul Adefarasin
Pastor Paul Adefarasin is the senior pastor of the House on the Rock churches. The televangelist became more popular when he told his members to have a plan B in a viral video.
Pastor Paul Adefarasin was also spotted educating his followers on his Twitter page few hours after ban.
While it seems that these men of God have disobeyed the FG’s order by tweeting on the platform, it is understandable that these ministers have many branches of their ministries outside Nigeria.
