Twitter Ban: Jubilation As FG Announces When Suspension Will Be Reversed
Following the recent Twitter Ban, FG Announces When Suspension Will Be Reversed
The federal government has disclosed that the ban imposed on microblogging site, Twitter, will be reversed when the company is duly registered, licensed, and operates within regulations stipulated in Nigeria.
Channels TV reported that the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, made the disclosure on Wednesday, June 9, after the federal executive council meeting.
He said the social media company has reached out to the government for dialogue.
The minister noted that reports of Twitter’s huge financial losses running into billions indicate that the ban has been effective so far.
According to the minister, Mohammed reiterated his claims that the microblogging site has been a platform of choice for separatists to thrive.
However, the minister refrained from answering questions about the law under which Nigerians who violate the ban would be prosecuted.
He said the attorney general of the federation would provide answers to the question.
