Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, said that Twitter has agreed to conditions laid out by the government regarding it’s operation so as to lift the ban.
The social media platform was banned by the Federal Government of Nigerian in June 2021.
Keyamo made this known while speaking on an interview with Channels Television on Sunday, Nov. 28. He said the committee set up by the Federal Government which he is also to member of, to review the operations of Twitter has made significant progress.
He said “The reason the president took that step is to recalibrate our relationship with Twitter and not to drive them away from our country.
“That recalibration, we have started it and the President graciously added me to the committee.
“We also set up a technical committee to interface with Twitter and come up with a lot of conditions for them to fulfill for us to lift the suspension.
“It was Twitter that reached out to the Federal Government to say they want to know what and what they can do to straighten up the relationship with the Federal Government and so, we have gone far but I may not, at this forum, let out a lot but we gave them a lot of conditions and they have agreed to all the conditions.”
