FG in talks with Twitter over suspension —Minister
Nigeria’s government has said it has established discussion with Twitter over possible lifting of the ban it placed on the operation of the social media giant in the country.
The Foreign Affairs minister Geoffrey Onyeama who disclosed this told reporters Monday said it was difficult to mention when the suspension will be lifted.
“There are discussions ongoing with Twitter, we will see how that progresses, so I cannot say for now the duration of the suspension,” Onyeama said after a meeting with diplomats on the issue.
Africa’s most populous country said it was suspending the platform on Friday, two days after Twitter deleted a comment from the president’s account for violating its rules.
