The Nigerian Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on behalf of the Federal Government, has hinted yet again on Wednesday, that an end to the Twitter ban in Nigeria is near. He made this known while briefing State House reporters after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting in Abuja.
He said that the government is working hard to restore Twitter’s operations in Nigeria, and Twitter also alluded to this in their last progress report.
Lai Mohammed said, “Honestly, we have gone very far. I won’t be specific but we have gone very far,” the minister said.
“Honestly, it is going to be very soon. Just take my words for that. Even Twitter itself gave a progress report on our talks with them.
“If I want to quote them rightly, they said it has been quite productive and respectful. As to how soon is soon, if the operation has been successful for hundred days now, we are just talking about a few more days.
“I can assure Nigerians that we are not unmindful of the anxiety and both parties are working very hard to put a closure on the matter.”
