It could be recalled that Twitter deleted a tweet posted by the President, Muhammad Buhari in which he threatened to deal with those plotting against Nigeria, and the security authorities.
He further revealed that those misbehaving today are too young to understand the destruction and loss that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War, and promised to deal with them in the language they understand.
In response to this development, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lia Mohammed in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Segun Adeyemo said that the federal government has considered suspending the use of Twitter in Nigeria, adding that the continues use of the platform could damage the corporate existence of the country.
Twitter, however, in a statement this Saturday afternoon, revealed that they're deeply concerned by the blocking of its operation in Nigeria.
Assuring Nigerians that they are working to restore access to all those who rely on them to communicate, and connect with the world.
