The Federal Government has stated that the Twitter suspension in Nigeria is yet to be lifted because, Twitter Inc is yet to meet all the conditions of the Federal Government.
This was disclosed by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, during the Nigeria International Partnership Forum in Paris.
Lai Mohammed stated that Twitter was not banned in Nigeria but suspended. According to him, Twitter suspension is not connected to President Muhammadu Buhari.
His words: “I want to categorically say that Twitter was not banned by Nigera, it was only suspended. So, Twitter was never banned, it was suspended. Also, the suspension has nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari.”
“The correspondences between us and Twitter have reached advanced stage. I want to say that the correspondences and the exchanges have been fruitful. But we have a few more issues to resolve. Out of about 12 conditions, Twitter has been able to meet 10. Very soon, all issues will be resolved in a way that it will be good for both our country and Twitter”, he said.
