President Buhari Lifts Twitter Ban, But Gives Conditions.

President Muhammadu Buhari has lifted the ban on the services of social media application, Twitter in Nigeria. However he gave certain conditions to be met for the app not to be suspended again.

In his independence day Buhari on Friday, October 1st, 2021 said that the platform must ensure Nigerians use it for business and positive engagements.

The president said some people have been using it as a platform to coordinate criminal activities, spread fake news, and promote ethnic and religious sentiments.

Although it’s unclear when the order to lift the ban will be enforced, President Buhari added that the government’s dialogue with Twitter revolved around national security, physical representation, fair taxation, dispute resolution, and local content.

We recall that the Federal Government had controversially banned Twitter in June, accusing it of endorsing activities that are destabilising Nigeria.

The suspension was announced just days after Twitter deleted a tweet from President Buhari’s official account after it was deemed to have violated its rules.
