Lai Mohammed: Twitter Has Reached Us For Talks by Islie: 3:21pm On Jun 09

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Wednesday, disclosed the readiness of the popular social media giant, Twitter, for engagements with the Federal Government.

Citing interference, the Federal Government suspended the operations of the microblogging site on Friday.

Speaking with State House correspondents after the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC), Mohammed said Twitter had reached out to the government seeking high-level discussion to resolve the issue.

He said that he got the message on Wednesday morning.

The minister stressed that the microblogging platform was suspended because it provided an avenue for people threatening the corporate existence of Nigeria.

According to him, the owner of Twitter helped to fund the recent #EndSARS protest while allowing the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, use the platform to call for the killing of policemen.

He said Twitter failed to take down Kanu’s tweets despite repeated requests to do so.

Mohammed listed conditions that must be met even if there is a discussion with Twitter including that it must now be registered in Nigeria as a business concern.

Apart from Twitter, he said other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram must be registered in the country.

He said freedom of speech has not been stifled by the suspension of Twitter as Nigerians can still use other platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.

He dismissed the notion the suspension is not effective, wondering why Twitter is losing money as a result of the action if such view is genuine.

Yes. This is very important.
Foreign companies should not be allowed to avoid tax and regulations.

Did this one actually realise that lawmakers in Nigeria have asked Nigerians to continue tweeting as they break no laws in the country?

The liar lai has started. Well, make we siddon dey look if this is true or not.
But looking at it circumspectively, I think twitter may possibly reach out as it affects them more owing to the population of Nigeria and social media activity. It is business wisdom for them to resolve this ASAP.
