FG GIVES CONDITION TO LIFT TWITTER SUSPENSION

The Federal Government has given a condition to lift its indefinite suspension of Twitter in Nigeria.


Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affair, Geoffrey Onyeama, said at a meeting with some envoys that Twitter’s operations in Nigeria will be restored only if the platform can be used “responsibly.”

 

When asked when the ban will be lifted, the Minister noted there is no definite timeline for that, but said: “The condition would be responsible use of the social media and that really has to be it.”


“We are not saying that Twitter is threatening the country or any such thing; why we have taken this measure is to stop them to be used as platforms for destabilisation and facilitation of criminality or encouragement of criminalities,” he also said.


Recall, on Friday, the Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, disclosed that the Federal Government has suspended Twitter for sanctioning President Buhari's civil war tweets.
