Recently, the Federal Government had through the honorable minister of information and culture Lai Mohammed placed a temporary ban on the microblogging App called Twitter in Nigeria. The ban imposed on Twitter in Nigeria as a result of Twitter deleting a tweet made by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Hence, this ban imposed onTwitter in Nigeria had drawn criticisms and reactions from both Nigerians and even the global community.
However, after a Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting held today at the Statehouse Abuja, special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media has disclosed the outcome of the meeting with regards to the ban of Twitter in Nigeria.
According to Bashir Ahmad's post on his verified Facebook handle, the ban imposed on Twitter in Nigeria will be reversed when the microblogging site is fully registered, licensed, and operates within regulations stipulated in Nigeria.
This is indeed a welcomed development because, since the imposed ban on Twitter, so many businesses that use the Twitter site as its means of operation have been affected.
