Nigeria

Nigeria bans Twitter

  • Twitter banned as government claims it facilitates insecurity, although ban follows removal of post by President Buhari

  • Nigeria is Africa's largest Tech venture capital market in absolute terms, but relatively small in per capita terms

  • For ESG types, Nigeria scores much better on press freedom than largest emerging (China) and frontier (Vietnam) markets
