Sweden has reacted to the Federal Government’s suspension of the operations of Twitter in the country.

The Federal Government had on Friday suspend micro blogging and social networking service, Twitter indefinitely in the country.

Sweden’s embassy in Nigeria, in a terse post via its Twitter handle, noted Nigerians have the constitutional right to exercise their freedom of expression.

It further stated this constitutional right must be respected.

“Nigerians have a constitutional right to exercise their freedom of expression and a right to access of information. This must be respected.

“Safeguarding free, independent media and civic spaces for democratic voices is an important part of Sweden’s #DriveForDemocracy #TwitterBan,” Sweden stated.
