Why Twitter Suspension Has Not Been Lifted— FG

The Federal Government has assured Nigerians that all issues related to the ban on Twitter will soon be resolved.

The government said the suspension was yet to be  lifted because the company has met 10 out of the 12 conditions given it.

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, disclosed these while responding to a question from a participant at Nigeria International Partnership Forum in Paris.

The Information Minister clarified that the suspension of Twitter had nothing to do with issues bordering on President Muhammadu Buhari.
Most investors at the forum were eager about the circumstances behind the suspension of Twitter.

While explaining why the suspension of Twitter was not yet lifted, Lai Mohammed said “I want to categorically say that Twitter was not banned by Nigera, it was only suspended. So, Twitter was never banned, it was suspended.

“Also, the suspension has nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari.

“The correspondences between us and Twitter have reached advanced stage. I want to say that the correspondences and the exchanges have been fruitful.

“But we have a few more issues to resolve. Out of about 12 conditions, Twitter has been able to meet 10.

“Very soon, all issues will be resolved in a way that it will be good for both our country and Twitter.”

The Minister's mastery of French caught the lady participant, who asked the question off.
