FG reveals what Twitter must do before ban can be reversed

Breaking: Twitter Nigeria is down


The federal government has disclosed that the management of Twitter has reached out for a “high-level discussion” to resolve the issue that led to the suspension of its operations in Nigeria.

This was disclosed by the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed after the meeting of the federal executive council (FEC) on Wednesday.

The meeting, which held at the presidential villa, Abuja, was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The minister said Twitter must be registered as a business entity in Nigeria, noting that it is one of the conditions that must be met before the suspension can be reversed.

He said other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram must also be registered in the country.

Mohammed said freedom of speech was not stifled by the suspension of Twitter, adding that Nigerians can still use other platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.

He added that Twitter’s loss of money as a result of the suspension is an indication of its effectiveness.

Mohammed said the suspension was necessary because the micro-blogging site provided a platform for those that are threatening the existence of Nigeria.

The minister alleged that Twitter allowed Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to use its platform to call for the killing of policemen.

He said Twitter failed to take down Kanu’s tweets despite repeated requests to do so.
