The ban on Twitter is in force because the tech giant is yet to meet two of the 10 conditions rolled out by the Federal Government.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed disclosed at the Nigeria International Partnership Forum in Paris that the impasse had nothing to with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Most investors at the forum were eager about the circumstances behind the suspension of Twitter.
The lady participant, who asked the question was perplexed and caught off guard by the Minister’s mastery of French.
But Mohammed took time to explain why the suspension of Twitter was not yet lifted.
”I want to categorically say that Twitter was not banned by Nigeria, it was only suspended. So, Twitter was never banned, it was suspended.
” Also, the suspension has nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The correspondences between us and Twitter have reached an advanced stage. I want to say that the correspondences and the exchanges have been fruitful.
“But we have a few more issues to resolve. Out of about 12 conditions, Twitter has been able to meet 10.
“Very soon, all issues will be resolved in a way that it will be good for both our country and Twitter,” said the minister.
