Twitter Negotiates With Nigeria To Lift Suspension – FG

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, disclosed that Twitter negotiated with the Nigerian Government in the wake of the suspension of the microblogging site.

Mohammed made this clarification while reacting to the claim by a former senior Twitter official that there was no negotiation between the company and Nigeria to rescind its suspension on Twitter.

The minister, who spoke at a news conference in Abuja, described the attempt to deny what transpired between the two parties as “ludicrous”.

On June 5, 2021, the FG officially banned Twitter 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 treated in the language they understand.”
