The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan has finally broken his silence over the Twitter suspension order in Nigeria. According to him, Nigeria needs Twitter.
He said this during the event held in Abuja to mark the second anniversary of the 9th Senate. The Chairman of the National Assembly said the senate is optimistic that the federal government and Twitter will eventually resolve their differences.
“The honorable minister of information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, informed Nigerians that they are talking with Twitter to resolve this matter. Our belief is that Nigeria needs Twitter just as much as Twitter needs Nigeria,” he said.
“We believe that the matter between Twitter and the federal government of Nigeria will be resolved. But beyond that, I’m an optimist, I believe all of us will have learnt our lessons,” he continued.
