The government of Nigeria has lifted the suspension of Twitter operations. The lift was said to have received the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari. The ban had been on for 222 days and started after Twitter deleted Buhari’s comments against the Igbo and IPOB, a separatist group he described as dot within a circle that he would teach a lesson like in the past Nigeria Biafra war.
Chairman of the Technical Committee Nigeria-Twitter Engagement and Director-General National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, CCIE.
In a statement on Wednesday in Abuja, Kashifu noted the approval was given following a memo written to Buhari by his Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Ali Pantami
