MICRO social media giant Twitter has reacted to the decision by the Federal Government to lift the ban on the use of its platform in Nigeria.
“We recently met with the Nigerian government to discuss why Twitter has been blocked and ways to resolve the matter,” a spokesperson for the microblogging site was quoted by Reuters to.have said.
“Our aim is to chart a path forward to the restoration of Twitter for everyone in Nigeria. We look forward to ongoing discussions with the Nigerian government and seeing the service restored very soon.”
This followed the announcement by the Minister of information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, that the government would lift the ban on Twitter in a matter of days.
Mohammed who briefed State House reporters at the end of the Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday revealed that the status of the conversation with the social media giant had reached an amicable stage.
He had explained that agreements had been reached in all areas, except three that had been unresolved.
One of the pending issues centres on the condition that Twitter establishes a legal presence registered as a Nigerian company with an office address and an employee to serve as a country representative in Nigeria.
Although Twitter did not turn down the condition in totality, it insisted that the earliest time it could establish a company would be by 2022.
