Lai Mohammed: NBC To License All Social Media Operations In Nigeria by valentineuwakwe(m): 12:19am On Jun 05
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, says the National Broadcasting Commission, will immediately commence the process of licensing all social media operations in Nigeria. The NBC is the regulator of all radio and television stations in Nigeria.

The minister announced this just as he said the Federal Government has also suspended micro-blogging platform, Twitter, which is popularly used by Nigerian youths, elite and the middle class.

The government’s action followed Twitter’s deletion of a ‘civil war’ post by the Nigerian President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), which the social media platform said violated its policies.

Other social media platforms used by Nigerians include Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Youtube, amongst others.

In a statement on Friday by the minister’s Special Assistant on Media, Segun Adeyemi, the minister said the measure is with immediate effect.

However, checks by our correspondent showed that Twitter is still up in Nigeria as of the time of filing this report as users still have access to the platform. The minister’s statement was also silent on the time that the ban would be enforced.

Very good development!
This is the first time President Buhari is taking a proactive step that i like. It's long overdue!

A good leader should not watch his own house collapse before his face due to controllable circumstances without doing nothing.

The goal is to gag Nigerians.
They are calling for another EndSars protest, they feel they made a mistake in the first one, so they are trying to push us to do another, so that they can ‘talk to us in the language we understand’.

This was their goal all along. They were just waiting for the slightest opportunity/excuse to enforce it.

But wait is Nairaland included in this? I don’t want DSS at my door o. Y’all be careful.

This has nothing to do with a recently deleted tweet but everything to do with getting back at Twitter for giving young Nigerians a voice against police brutality during the EndSARS movement!
