A Nigerian man recently took his social media platform with a series of tweets in which he had given the suggestion that internet access should be restricted during the forthcoming general elections.
The Nigerian man identified as Aye.Dee tweeted that internet use should be completely shut down at precisely 11:59pm, on Friday, February 12, and should be restored at exactly the same time on Saturday, February 16, 2019, after the completion of the election exercise.
He said if this step was not taken, there would be chaos in the country as two of the leading political parties in the forthcoming general elections, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC), are bound to brandish fake results.
The concerned citizen stressed that the 2019 election was a crucial one, as such, manipulation of the electorates for propaganda by the political parties cannot be allowed.

Dee also added that it made sense to restrict the access of internet to sanctify the electoral process. He cited an example of Bangladesh, a country with over 160 million population, that had made a similar call with internet use during the country’s general elections.
Legit.ng had however previously reported that the national security adviser, Babagana Moguno, has denied plans to shut down internet. He assured Nigerians to disregard the allegation that his office had any plans to take such an action.
