Oyogist.com has learned that minister of information in Nigeria, Lai Mohammed, has blamed unpatriotic Nigerians and last year #EndSARS protesters for Twitter’s choice of Ghana as its headquarters in Africa.

Recall earlier this week, Jack Dorsey announced Ghana as it’s head office in Africa. The announcement has since generated reactions from Nigerians on social media.Lai Mohammed in an interview earlier yesterday, blamed the turnout of events on Nigerians.

He said;

“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 the country, among other reasons. This is what you get when you de-market your country.

“The media is more to blame for this which most times exaggerate the challenges in the country. At no time was this worse than during the #EndSARS protest when Nigerian journalists both traditional and new media were trying to outdo themselves in painting Nigeria as a hell where nobody should live,” he said.

“They all conspired to vilify not just the government but the people of Nigeria. We are not saying that you should not criticise the country but be fair and patriotic. When you destroy your own house, where are you going to live?

“You can imagine the kind of job opportunities that citing that headquarters in Nigeria would have generated, 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.”
