#Twitterban: 48hours after, PDP Reps Caucus still walk freely, waiting for Buhari, Malami to effect arrests



… nobody has summoned us – Reps
…as Buhari keep mum over Twitter ban

By Emman Ovuakporie

48 hours after Peoples Democratic Party, PDP House of Representatives Caucus declared that they will continue to tweet and they should be arrested not their constituents, President Muhamnadu Buhari and Minister of Justice and Attorney General to the Federation, Abubakar Malami are yet to issue a warrant of arrest., (TNG) recalls that last Tuesday at about 1.27pm members of the PDP caucus after staging a quiet walkout from plenary addressed a press conference declaring that they will continue to tweet and that their constituents which they represent should not be arrested.

Arrowhead of the caucus, Rep Kingsley Chinda, in his brief had insisted that”do not touch our constituents rather arrest our constituents because you can’t arrest them for an offence they never committed.

“If you must arrest anybody arrest us because we will continue to tweet but touch not our constituents.

The lawmakers without any further delay opened Tweeter accounts to make good their threats that they will continue to tweet.

But on Thursday, during an interview with Arise tv, Buhari cleverly avoided the question on Twitter ban when he was asked to react to it.

TNG in separate interviews with two top ranking members of the PDP caucus declared that “as you can see we are patiently waiting for them to arrest us but we have not received any notice.

A ranking lawmaker from the North Central simply told TNG, “yes we stand by our position do not arrest our constituents, if you touch just one of them you touch us all.

” We are patiently waiting for them to arrest us and we will prove our 100 percent loyalty to our constituents, they brought us here to right the wrongs not to support pronouncements made without any legal backing.

Another rep from the south south geo-political zone spoke in a similar vein declaring that”well we have made our position clear on no account should any of our constituents be arrested for tweeting and that aside it’s a mere pronouncement without the force of law.

” We are patiently waiting to hear from them on their next line of action or pronouncement.
