FG Gives Condition To Lift Ban On Twitter by superstar1(m): 1:43pm On Jun 07
The federal government has given a condition to lift its indefinite suspension of Twitter in Nigeria.

Geoffrey Onyeama, minister of foreign affairs, said at a meeting with some envoys that Twitter’s operations in Nigeria will be restored only if the platform can be used “responsibly.”

Asked when the ban will be lifted, Onyeama said there is no definite timeline for that, but added: “The condition would be responsible use of the social media and that really has to be it.”

“We are not saying that Twitter is threatening the country or any such thing; why we have taken this measure is to stop them to be used as platforms for destabilisation and facilitation of criminality or encouragement of criminalities,” he also said.

Nigeria will not back down. We just told your US Canada and UK to their faces.

Just today, France fined Google £190m - US Canada and UK are deaf and dumb! It is only African countries they are always happy to comment on. Idiots

Responsible. What a vague trash. An irresponsible government teaching us what's responsible and what's not. This is not alcohol

Google is worth $340 billion. What is $190m.

And Nigeria is not France. There is free speech in France.

Black man - reason properly.

In addition to that, Twitter should tender an unreserved apology to the president with a promise to always delete tweets that compromise the sovereignity and territorial integrity of Nigeria.

The hunch-back, ashewo-fuckin', demented, IPOBic albino based in the U.K should also be permanently banned from Twitter.

Without doing the aforementioned, the ban remains.

I am sure you are disappointed all your threats are wishful thinking are coming to nothing. Ndo for you.

You have just seen phase 2 today - directing media houses to get off Twitter and the invitation of the diplomats.

Phase 3 is coming.

Also notice the way the traffic on Twitter has thinned out.

How many times has Emmanuel Macron gone to UK for medical check up?

How many times has France depended on Super Tucanos from US to defeat insurrections in its land?

Uarian take it easy now. People are using twitter to sell and buy and also to brand their businesses and follow international brands. One illiterate who thinks twitter is just for chit chat cant just ban twitter cos they hurt his feelings. What does a professional cattle herdsman know about twitter?

He talks like an idiot, that's why he was banned. He cant shut down twitter because of his personal aggressiveness and tribal genocidal tendencies.

FG will never back down. Twitter remains banned until they begin to act responsibly.

Twitter has been used to destabiliseer the relative peace in Nigeria.

We condemn Twitter, We condemn Twitter, We condemn it, we condemn it.

Those waiting and gnashing there teeth are allowed to continue.

Ipobs using Twitter to propagate fake news.

No going back on the ban.

Nigeria getting great again.

God bless Buhari

Yes, i am sure you have never in your life own anything.

If someone takes just 0.0005% of your billions, you will be very very angry. Talkless of 1%. If everyone keeps taking your 0.0005% of your money, soon you will be broke.

You know what is making me angry......its not what gworo-loving, burukutu-sipping bastard dullard buhari is doing to Nigerians but the fact that there are people who support his every decision.

What makes it more painful is that these people are young people, not from the north and are educated. angry angry angry
