Social media giant, Twitter, has informed the Nigerian government of its readiness to negotiate with the Nigerian government over the suspension placed on its micro-blogging platform.
Naija News recalls that the Buhari -led government suspended Twitter’s operation indefinitely in Nigeria.
This comes after the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Friday, in a statement released by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi, announced the suspension of Twitter’s operations in Nigeria indefinitely.
Mohammed also directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to immediately commence licensing all OTT and social media operations in the country.
Confirming the Minister’s comment, Twitter took to its platform on Friday, saying, “Today marks one week since Twitter was blocked in Nigeria. We have informed the Nigerian government that we are ready to meet for an open discussion to address mutual concerns and see the service restored. We remain advocates for the free and #OpenInternet everywhere. #KeepitOn.”
