Twitter has acknowledged that it is in negotiations with the Nigerian government to have its suspension lifted.
Reuters cited a Twitter representative as stating yesterday night, “We just talked with the Nigerian authorities to discuss why Twitter has been blocked and how to address the problem.”
“Our goal is to pave the way for everyone in Nigeria to have access to Twitter again. We anticipate further negotiations with the Nigerian authorities and the restoration of service as soon as possible.”
Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, said yesterday at the close of the Federal Executive Council meeting that the government will reverse the Twitter ban within days.
He claimed that agreements had been made in all areas save three, which he stated needed to be resolved.
