Twitter May Return to Nigeria But on One Condition

Social Media giant Twitter was banned in Nigeria back in June earlier this year. The way Twitter got banned was quite unusual. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari had made a tweet that Twitter removed off the platform, claiming that the tweet violated its rules. As a reaction to this, Nigeria had banned the platform “indefinitely” claiming Twitter’s activities were “activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.”

Nigeria commemorated its Independence Day on Friday, and Buhari made a televised speech on the day. It is claimed that Twitter had reached out to the government regarding a potential unban. He also says that a committee had engaged with the social media giant regarding most likely, the ban.

“Following the extensive engagements, the issues are being addressed, and I have directed that the suspension be lifted but only if the conditions are met to allow our citizens continue the use of the platform for business and positive engagements,” Buhari said.

It was very evident that Twitter was important to the nation. In his speech, Buhari said social media is “a very useful platform that has enabled millions of Nigerians to connect with loved ones, promote their businesses, socialize, and access news and other information,”. Buhari did not name a particular platform nor did he name Twitter, but indirectly people realized what this was about!

Twitter has a high chance of returning to Nigeria but it will be interesting to see what conditions the government has put forward and whether Twitter will abide by them!
