He claimed that earlier today his father called and asked to see him; as it sounded urgent, he hurried to the house. Given that he has been following his tweets and outspoken nature, he didn’t waste any time in communicating his worries about his safety.
He added that his father begged him to stop tweeting until the nation improves and critics of the government can do so without fear for their own safety.
He then posed the straightforward question: If you’re worried about losing your own, whose kids will f#ght for a better Nigeria? He claimed that they were both silent for several long seconds before he gave him a hug, unlocked the small refrigerator next to his bed, and uncorked two chilled bottles of beer for them both. A short while later, he started his car.
For his own peace of mind, he chose to block his father this evening. There won’t be any cause for concern or f£ar if he doesn’t see the tweets.
