In June 2021, the federal government announced the indefinite suspension of Twitter’s operation after the microblogging platform deleted tweets by President Muhammadu Buhari.

It had attributed the suspension to “the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”.

But on Wednesday, the government announced that the ban had been lifted. It also said that it had reached an amicable resolution with Twitter on various terms and conditions given to the micro-blogging platform.
