Tweeter has agreed to open its office in Nigeria in 2022, just as the country may be willing to lift the ban placed on the multi-blogging company, the Federal Government said on Wednesday.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed made this disclosure while briefing State House correspondents at the end of the virtual Federal Executive Council, FEC, explaining that the federal government’s engagement with Tweeter had been extremely positive without any acrimony.
According to Mohammed, the Nigerian government would lift the ban on Tweeter operations in the country “in a matter of days”.
Said the Minister: ”We have made it clear what we want from Tweeter. The end for amicable resolution is very much in sight.
‘We appreciate the patience of Nigerians. I want to assure you that we have made very tremendous progress. We have met with Tweeter both physically and in writing. We are actually almost there. They (Tweeter) have shown a lot of flexibility, the conversation has not been acrimonious”.
Mohammed added that although there were about three to four areas, the two were yet to reach an agreement, Tweeter has agreed to open office in the country in 2022.
