FG Suspends Twitter's Operations In Nigeria



The Federal Government has suspended, indefinitely, the operations of the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by Segun Adeyemi, Special Assistant To The President (Media), Office of the Minister of Information and Culture, Abuja.

Mohammed cited the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria's corporate existence as reason for the decision.

The Minister said the Federal Government has also directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to immediately commence the process of licensing all OTT and social media operations in Nigeria.
