Festus Keyamo the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has disclosed that micro-blogging platform company, Twitter has agreed the condition given to them by the Federal Government, after the platform was suspended in Nigeria in mid-2021.
The mister disclosed this in a Sunday morning interview with Channels Television, stating committee set up by the Federal Government to review the operations of Twitter has made significant progress, and thus lifting the ban on the platform is imminent. In his words;
“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.
So in that aspect, 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.”
