Nigerian Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has states that the ban on social media giant, Twitter is going to be lifted in a few more days.
Recall that the Federal Government had a standoff with Twitter on June 4, two days after the bird app site took down a controversial tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Reportedly the FG has had some talks with Twitter both physically and in writing which would yield some positive results in a short possible time. Nigerians have been longing to get back on Twitter and tweet without VPN after Lai warned that the use of VPN’s exposes the data and information of the user to the internet.
Lai Mohammed made the stated as he fielded questions from State House journalists at the end of Wednesday’s cabinet meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said: “I think even Twitter itself two days ago gave what I will call a progress report 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 the qualifying word for when or how soon, I want to assure you that the time that Twitter operation has been suspended, between the time it has been suspended, and when it will be restored is by far, much, much shorter.
“That I can assure you that it is by far in other words, if the operation has been suspended for about 100 days now, I can tell that we’re just actually talking about a few, just a few more days now,”
We all think it’s a welcomed idea as most Nigerian citizens are almost tired of tweeting with VPN, Nigerians are eagerly waiting for the social media platform
