Hello and welcome to my alive challenge post.
Being alive in the land of the living means that my creator has need for me. That's my opinion.
Looking at people within my area, I discovered that we have different kinds of people with different feelings on a particular event.
It's too obvious and not even hidden in any way that one's perception which could be positive might be felt as negative by the other person.
That's the basement of every failure of governance, if this exist at the executive level.
In Nigeria, most people are very tired and angry, very annoyed and vexed by the way the government is doing their thing.
To an extent, it doesn't really benefit the poor mass but to the play makers.
The hearts of many were once hardened six months ago when Twitter Nigeria was banned for reason best known by the ruling government.
Just about 21 hours before the publication of this article, the ban was lifted, paving way for the paused businesses to resume.
Yeah, it's a nice development which will definitely affect the citizens positively, but why was it banned at first?
Was it because of the citizens or the government's opinion and interest?
Why was it reopened since they were not conforming to the regulatory agencies?
At last, we rejoice for what was taken from us has returned to us broken.
Yes, broken.
Some persons loss their jobs, careers, accounts to VPN hack, hubbies and many more.
In fact, it crippled the finances of some SMEs that have their major source of income based on Twitter.
Yet, we rejoice at last.
Am alive and thriving, that's all that matters to me.
Nigeria must be better. With or without an elderly leader.
Thanks for reading my story/opinion.

Sort:  

The government should understand that you cannot control a person's life especially on social media seeing that most people live a different live there.
Well, I'm grateful they finally realized it and unbanned twitter

Yeah dearie.
They have tried in their own way.
Thanks for stopping by

@ddn688, You need more $LOLZ to use this command. The minimum requirement is 16.0 LOLZ.
You can get more $LOLZ on HE.

Yes buddy, you asked a nice question: whose fault was it? It is not the fault of the masses. Rather those who think that their views must prevail over those of the masses. Those who believe in the use of state power to score some political point, to throw their weight around, to boss everything that come their way... Anyway, the election is almost around the corner. They need Twitter and other social media to further spread their unsavoury political agenda. I am happy anyway that it is finally over. Just image the speed with which Twitter was banned and technology put in place to effectively restrict it's access in Nigeria and the corresponding speed they also applied to lift the ban; yet they won't apply such alacrity to fix things in Nigeria. What an irony.

Thanks for your post buddy. We are alive and will continue to be no matter what they throw at us, LOL! Our lovely Twitter is finally back.

Yes
Yes
Yes boss
You nailed it.
!LOL election is around the corner and they really need to throw their webs.
Hahahaha
We're alive and thriving.
Thanks for stopping by boss

Yes @ddn688 it is tough when governments over reach.
Even here in the UK under democracy we learn our government made us stay in our homes while they had parties without restrictions.
People are not happy.
But like you said We Are Alive

For the past month that Twitter has been banned I wonder also what make to take the step in the first place and it shows that they are knowledgeable and not knowledgeable. That is they think they smart and but reverse is the case.
They stop that because of #endsarsprotest because what happened in October 2020 is first of its kind and never happened before and they know the one voice comes from Twitter which unite us together. So stop that they have to stop that from happening.
Well I hope things go the right way. God bless Nigeria.

God bless Nigeria my brother.
I believe that things will find its best pathway.
Our voices must be heard by hook or sinker.
We're the youths and the tomorrow leaders our country can have.
Thanks for sharing with me, your thoughts.
Have a great day bro

You are welcome bro

Yes buddy. Thanks for sharing this and I bet you their next move will be lifting the ban on crypto. They need cash to fund their electioneering campaigns 😃

Hahahaha
That's would be huge and a successful one for the whole crypto users in Nigeria.
Damn!
That would be greater

Hahahahaha, this administration is unpredictable. I see that happening soon.

Yeah, it should just happen asap

Keep hope,

I am glad you are !ALIVE and well, censorship is the worst thing that can happen to a nation, in my country there is also censorship, they have not messed with the internet, but they have had the intentions, I hope not, the radio stations and TV if they are censored by the government, if any station speaks ill of the government they close it, I hope this will change someday.

Yeah, for national radio and TV stations, they're highly censored. They can't reveal the truth but tell more lies for the government.
The social media is the only way to reveal all of their illegal activities.
Thanks boss for the comment.

Hello dear friend @ddn688, Happy to see you alive on the planet. The god gives us good opportunity to live in the world. Currently Nigeria citizens are lucky with unbanned twitter again. Many citizens hope to see good leader to their own states. Unfortunately politicians doing wrost activities against people. With this good decision I believe Nigeria will become better place from economicaly and independantly.

Yeah, God shall see us through these periods of less concerned leaders.
Thanks Madu for the comment

Unfortunately totalitarianism is advanced on the planet in a worrying way. In Europe governments are increasingly undemocratic and mistreat their citizens. We are going back to the 19th century.

Damn!
This is really not unfair
The world does not revolve backwards
It's just tiring to read about the inadequacy of our governments

Am happy to see you alive dear friend @ddn688 yes ooo Twitter is back and we can now enjoy it,enjoy your day friend

Yeah bro.
Businesses are foaming again on Twitter.
Thank for stopping by and have a great Friday

The government are obviously at fault, this is a democratic nation, and there should be freedom of speech and expression, of which the government deprived us off.

I didn't venture into the use of VPN cause I know and am aware of most of it downside as a computer professional.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes bro, VPN dealt with many people using it.
Thank to God that we're back on track.
Do have a lovely weekend

I say Amen to that.
This old men can't stop us from making this country a better place.
Good morning ma'am

Good morning sir! Have a great day

I agree, it would be very good to know the reason for the ban in the first place and also why it was lifted just 23 hours later. However knowing this information would not help those that were impacted nor will it bring back any of the loss that was experienced. Take care.

!ALIVE

Yeah, we encountered many losses
They've kept the reasons for their action beneath the carpet.
It's well.
Thanks for the comment darmst.

Great to hear that you are alive Daniel, and that Twitter is back in your country, I hope many have used Hive instead as that is much harder to block, but also that you will get a government friendly of the people, enjoy your day and stay safe, awesome and alive.
