After being slammed for paying a visit to the Nigerian Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, Apaokagi Maryam, better known by Comedian Taaooma, has responded.

Recall that a number of online comedians, including Josh2funny, paid a visit to Osinbajo and this angered Nigerians as they questioned why the comedians, who should speak truth to people in power, are dinning with politicians.

The fact that Mr Macaroni who has been critical of the present administration, was not at the meeting, convinced a number of people that he was not invited because he criticises the government.

Those who attended the meeting were called out by Nigerians after the news of the meeting was made public and Taaooma later took to Instagram to write about the visit.

She revealed that she spoke to the VP, urging him to lift the Twitter ban. She added that she also brought up the issue of police brutality.

She wrote:

“Yesterday, I had the chance of meeting with the VP of the federation at the Presidential villa, Abuja.

I urged for the “actual” lifting of the Twitter ban and as well, stressed on the issue of police brutality which hasn’t gotten any bit of change even after all the promises.

I made the presidency understand how important Twitter is for the majority of us (the youths). The SMEs and the very plenty others who make a living via that platform.

The Twitter ban has made so many small scale business crash and disrupted many.

“I also made it known to the VP that Police brutality hasn’t stopped and we the youths seem to be the target of that institution. #Endsars was not just to end SARS alone, it was to end all forms of police brutality and irresponsibility.

I hope the assurances I got yesterday will take effect immediately.

However guys, we must know that we the youth make 70% of the population and we have the future in our hands. The next step now is to GET YOUR PVC!!! #ENDSARS #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY #LIFTTWITTERBAN ✊”.
