Federal Government Gives Condition for Lifting of Twitter Ban

The Federal Government has revealed the condition for lifting Twitter ban in Nigeria in its meeting with the envoys of the US, UK, Canada and the European Union.

According to Geoffrey Onyeama, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Twitter’s operations in Nigeria will be restored only if the platform can be used “responsibly”.

However, the Federal Government has not revealed the exact date when the ban will be lifted; however, Geoffrey Onyeama 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 added.
