The president of Nigeria, his excellency presidential Muhammadu Buhari has lifted the ban placed on Twitter in the federation.
Buhari on Friday morning while addressing the nation during his Independence Day speech said after much negotiation between his set up committee and Twitter executives, the ban on the micro blogging site has been lifted but on the condition that Nigerians will only use it in business and positive engagements.
Recall the presidency placed a ban on Twitter on the 5th of June earlier this year with allegations of misuse on the part of the citizens.
Read Buhari’s full speech on the ban lift;
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 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 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.
