APC Tackles PDP Over Twitter’s Headquarters

The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC has fired back at the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over Jack Dorsey’s decision to cite Twitter’s Headquarters in Ghana.

In a statement signed by James Akpanudoedehe, the National Secretary, Caretaker Planning Committee of the APC, the party said private businesses’ decision on where to cite their operations is their exclusive preserve.

The party noted that the PDP does not mean well for Nigeria for celebrating what it described as missed business prospects.

Akpanudoedehe cited other multinational technology companies in Nigeria, including Facebook, Google, who have their offices in Nigeria.

The party also listed Anheuser-Busch InBev and multinational food manufacturing giants Kelloggs as parts of companies situated in Nigeria despite what the PDP described as misrule under the President Buhari-led administration.
