President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that the ban on Twitter be lifted after about 222 days.

Recall that, Buhari had ordered the ban in June 2021, days after his tweet deemed genocidal against the people of the South-East geo-political zone was deleted. He gave the order after reviewing a memo to that effect from the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.

This was made known in a statement released by the Chairman Technical Committee Nigeria-Twitter Engagement and Director-General National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, CCIE, thus:

“The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) directs me to inform the public that President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, has approved the lifting of the suspension of Twitter operation in Nigeria effective from 12am tonight, 13th January 2022,”

The approval was given following a memo written to the President by the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Ali Ibrahim.

In the Memo, the Minister updated and requested the President’s approval for the lifting based on the Technical Committee Nigeria-Twitter Engagement’s recommendation.
