FG bans Twitter in Nigeria
By Samuel Ogunsona
The Nigerian authority has banned the use of twitter social media handling in Nigeria.
The Federal Government today suspended, indefinitely, the operations of
the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a statement made available to Irohinoodua
announced the suspension in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday,
citing the persistent use of the platform for activities that are
capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.
The Minister said the Federal Government has also directed the
National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to immediately commence the
process of licensing all OTT and social media operations in Nigeria.
