President Muhammadu Buhari has announced that the suspension on Twitter’s operation in Nigeria has been lifted.

The president disclosed this in his Nigeria’s 61st Independence Day broadcast obtained by TECHlife media

According to President Buhari, while efforts were ongoing to prevent further misuse of social media, the suspension of Twitter operation in Nigeria had been lifted. It is, however, subjected to some conditions.

The government had, on June 4, announced the indefinite suspension of the micro-blogging site’s operation following the deleting of tweets made by President Buhari, who had threatened to treat members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the “language they understand”.

The federal government had, however, attributed the suspension to “the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”.

In August, the government said it had made “tremendous progress” in resolving the impasse following a series of meetings and that “an amicable solution is very much in sight”.
