Federal Government states conditions to lifting ban on Twitter


Federal Government stated the indefinite suspension of twitter will be rolled over, if Nigerians subject themselves to use the platform in a responsible manner.

This was made known by Godfrey Onyeama, Minister of Foreign Affairs to the newsmen after meeting with some envoys.

He further stated the FG didn't claim Twitter was destructive to the country but the suspension of its operations was a measure taken to prevent the destabilization of the country.

Although, no definite time was given for lifting the ban. He said, "we are not saying Twitter is threatening the country but it has become a platform that aids crimininalty, hence the need to suspend its operations in order to avoid destabilization of the country."

It should be noted that, Minister of Culture and Information, Lai Mohammed made the announcement. He said, "the persistent use of the platform for activities undermines Nigeria corporate existence."
