The Federal Government of Nigeria has revealed that micro blogging platform, Twitter will soon open an office in Nigeria.
While speaking to newsmen on Wednesday, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed revealed that Twitter might establish a Nigerian office in 2022.
He also disclosed that the suspension on Twitter will be lifted ‘very soon’.
He said; “We have made it clear what we want from Twitter. The end for amicable resolution is very much in sight.”
“We appreciate the patience of Nigerians. I want to assure you that we have made very tremendous progress. We have met with Twitter both physically and in writing. We are actually almost there.”
“They (Twitter) have shown a lot of flexibility, the conversation has not been acrimonious.”
On 5 June 2021, the Buhari-led government officially put an indefinite ban on Twitter, restricting it from operating in Nigeria after the social media platform deleted tweets made by the President Muhammadu Buhari warning the south eastern people of Nigeria, predominantly Igbo people.
The Nigerian government claimed that the deletion of the President’s tweets factored into their decision but it was ultimately based on “a litany of problems with the social media platform in Nigeria, where misinformation and fake news spread through it have had real world violent consequences”.
