Twitter ban will be lifted soon

The federal government has said that the ban on operations of giant, Twitter, in the country will be lifted soon.

 

Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed gave the update while responding to a question by state correspondents on the status of the ongoing talks between Twitter and the government.

 

Mohammed said; 

 

“I think even Twitter itself two days ago gave what I will call a progress on our talks with them. And I think if I want to quote them rightly, it has been productive and quite respectful.

“And as to how soon is soon, right? I want to assure you that between the time that Twitter operation has been suspended, and when it will be restored is by far, much, much shorter.

“In other words, if the operation has been suspended for about 100 days now, I can tell you that we’re just actually talking about a few, just a few more days now.

“I can assure us that we’re mindful of the anxiety of Nigerians and both parties are working very hard to put a closure on the matter.

“And like Twitter itself said, the changes have been very, very productive on both parties.”

 

When pressured to give a date when the ban will be lifted, the Minister said;

 

“Honestly, we have gone very far. I won’t be specific but we have gone very far, and honestly, it’s just going to be very, very soon, just take my word for that.”
