FG to lift Twitter suspension in a matter of days, says Lai Mohammed


The Federal Government has said it will lift its ban on Twitter, in a matter of days. Minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed announced this on Wednesday after the Federal Executive Council meeting chaired by the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.

Mr. Mohammed disclosed that the status of
the conversation with the microblogging site has reached an amicable stage, with
agreements reached in all areas except three. The remaining three unresolved
areas, according to him, are simply a matter of ‘when and not ‘if’ there would
be an implementation of conditions discussed.

One of the pending issues according to
the minister is in relation to the condition that Twitter establishes a legal
presence in Nigeria, registered as a Nigerian company with an office address
and an employee to serve as a country representative in the country. While not
turning down the proposition in totality, the micro-blogging site has
maintained that the earliest it can establish a company is in 2022.

The Federal Government suspended
Twitter’s operations in June after the social media platform deleted a tweet by
President Muhammadu Buhari for breaching the site’s rules.
