It would be recall that the federal government had on June 4, 2021, directed telecommunications companies in the country to block access to Twitter after the company deleted a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari on the grounds that it was in violation of its community guidelines.

But for the umpteenth time on Wednesday, Mohammed said the government would soon lift the twitter ban.

His words: “I think even Twitter itself two days ago gave what I will call a progress report on our talks with them. And I think if I want to quote them rightly, it has been productive and quite respectful.

“And as to how soon is soon, right? I want to assure you that between the time that Twitter operation has been suspended, and when it will be restored is by far, much, much shorter.

“In other words, if the operation has been suspended for about 100 days now, I can tell you that we’re just actually talking about a few, just a few more days now.

“I can assure us that we’re mindful of the anxiety of Nigerians and both parties are working very hard to put a closure on the matter.

“And like Twitter itself said, the changes have been very, very productive on both parties.”
