President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria has ordered for the ban on Twitter Nigeria to be lifted.
But that is only if Twitter is able to meet certain conditions, according to the President.
According to Mr Buhari, Nigerians could continue to use Twitter for “business and positive engagements”.
In a speech marking Nigerian independence day, Mr Buhari noted that a presidential committee had engaged with Twitter on a number of issues from national security, to fair taxation and dispute resolution.
It would be recalled that the Nigerian government suspended Twitter’s operations in Nigeria in June 2021. The US tech giant’s operations was suspended after it deleted a controversial tweet by President Buhari that violated its rules.
Mr Buhari’s tweet had referred to the 1967-70 Nigerian Civil War and to treating “those misbehaving today” in “the language they will understand”.
