The Federal Government has announced that its ban on the operations of the microblogging platform, Twitter, in Nigeria, will be lifted in a matter of days.
This disclosure was made by the Minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, after the Federal Executive Council meeting chaired by the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, on Wednesday in Abuja.
Mr Mohammed revealed that the status of the conversation with the microblogging site has reached an amicable stage, with agreements reached in all areas except 3.
The remaining three unresolved areas, according to him, are simply a matter of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ there would be an implementation of conditions discussed.
The minister pointed out that one of the pending issues is in relation to the condition that Twitter establishes a legal presence in Nigeria, registered as a Nigerian company with an office address and an employee to serve as a country representative in the country.
While not turning down the proposition in totality, the microblogging site has maintained that the earliest it can establish a company is in 2022.
