The federal government has given a condition to lift its
indefinite suspension of Twitter in Nigeria.
Geoffrey Onyeama, minister of foreign affairs, said at a
meeting with some envoys that Twitter’s operations in
Nigeria will be restored only if the platform can be used
Asked when the ban will be lifted, Onyeama said there is
no definite timeline for that, but added: “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 also said.
