    President Muhammadu Buhari Lifts Twitter Ban On Independence Day On Condition

    Twitter Ban

    Some months ago, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the ban of social networking platform, Twitter. As the country celebrates its 61st independence, the ban has now been conditionally lifted.

    The President on Friday morning stated he had directed a conditional lifting of the ban placed on the operations of app in Nigeria in June.

    Buhari revealed this in his nationwide broadcast to Nigerians to mark the nation’s 61st independence.

    The President said,

    “Social media is a very useful platform that has enabled millions of Nigerians to connect with loved ones, promote their businesses, socialise, and access news and other information.

    “However, recent events have shown that the platform is not just an innocuous platform for information dissemination.

    “Rather some users have misused the platform to organise, coordinate, and execute criminal activities, propagate fake news, and promote ethnic and religious sentiments.

    “To address these negative trends, the Federal Government of Nigeria suspended the operations of Twitter in Nigeria on June 5, 2021, to allow the Government to put measures in place to address these challenges.

    “Following the suspension of Twitter operations, Twitter Inc. reached out to the Federal Government of Nigeria to resolve the impasse. Subsequently, I constituted a Presidential Committee to engage Twitter to explore the possibility of resolving the issue.

    “The Committee, along with its Technical Team, has engaged with Twitter and have addressed a number of key issues. These are National Security and Cohesion; Registration, Physical presence and Representation; Fair Taxation; Dispute Resolution; and Local Content.

    “Following the extensive engagements, the issues are being addressed and I have directed that the suspension be lifted but only if the conditions are met to allow our citizens to continue the use of the platform for business and positive engagements.

    “As a country, we are committed to ensuring that digital companies use their platform to enhance the lives of our citizens, respect Nigeria’s sovereignty, cultural values and promote online safety.”
