WE WOULD LIFT TWITTER BAN IN A MATTER OF DAYS – FG

 

The Federal Government has said the ban on operations on microblogging platform, Twitter, will be lifted “in a matter of days”.

 

Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made this disclosure after the week’s virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Providing updates on the Government’s negotiation with the micro-blogging site, the Minister gave more details of the conditions given to the platform, saying most of them have been accepted.

 

Mohammed said the areas still pending such as Twitter setting up an office and having a Twitter staff of management cadre that will serve as the country representative, were being discussed.

 

The Minister expressed confidence everything will be hammered out with Twitter within a few days or weeks.

 

He said the Federal Government’s committee negotiating with Twitter will meet on the agreement soon to make recommendations.
