BREAKING! FG Announces When Twitter Ban Will Be Lifted
The federal government has stated that the ban on Twitter, a microblogging site, will be lifted after the company is properly registered, licensed, and operates in accordance with Nigerian rules.
According to Channels TV, the minister of communications and culture, Lai Mohammed, made the announcement at the federal executive council meeting on Wednesday, June 9.
The minister noted that reports of Twitter’s huge financial losses running into billions indicate that the ban has been effective so far.
According to The Cable, Mohammed reinforced his accusations that the microblogging site has served as a thriving forum for separatists.
The minister, however, avoided answering concerns concerning the law that will be used to prosecute Nigerians who break the restriction.
He stated that the attorney general of the United States will respond to the question.
