Twitter responds to FG’s plan to lift suspension


Twitter has said that it looks forward to Nigeria lifting the suspension on its services after an advanced negotiation.

The Federal Government banned Twitter on June 5 after the microblogging site deleted a tweet from the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)’s account.

More than two months since the ban, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed said the social networking site would soon be allowed to operate in Nigeria soon.

“The ban on Twitter will soon be lifted as we are getting close to reaching full agreement. We have agreed on some areas, hopefully in the next few days or weeks we will conclude,” the minister said.

Reacting, US-based Twitter confirmed it recently met with the Nigerian government to discuss the ban and how to resolve the matter.

“Our aim is to chart a path forward to the restoration of Twitter for everyone in Nigeria,” it said in a statement.

“We look forward to ongoing discussions with the Nigerian government and seeing the service restored very soon.”

Nigeria had said the ban would end when Twitter submitted to local licensing, registration and conditions for working in the country.
