The Federal Government has hinted that the over two months’ ban on the social networking site, Twitter, in Nigeria will be lifted soon.
This is as it said that it has reached an agreement with Twitter in most areas of misunderstanding.
Recall that on June 5, 2021, the FG had officially banned Twitter’s indefinitely, thereby restricting it from operating in Nigeria after the social media platform deleted tweets made by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), warning the Indigenous People of Biafra that they “will be treated in the language they understand”.
The FG had interpreted the deletion of Buhari’s tweets as discourteous and hinged upon “a litany of problems with the social media platform in Nigeria, where misinformation and fake news spread through it have had real-world violent consequences”.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lal Mohammed, while fielding questions from the press at the State House after Wednesday’s FEC meeting updated Nigerians on the issue saying that progress has been made in resolving the stalemate following series of meetings.
Meanwhile, the publisher of Saharareporters Mr Yele Sowore has criticized Buhari’s administration for banning and attempting to unban twitter in Nigeria.
“Who cares? We are still on Twitter going about our revolutionary duties! Shame on Muhammadu Buhari, we told them. Na Buhari go tire! RevolutionNow! #BuhariMustGo
