There are indications that the misunderstanding between the Nigerian government and microblogging giants, #Twitter may soon be resolved as President Muhammadu Buhari has
approved the federal government’s team to engage with the organisation over its suspension from operating in Nigeria.

This cheering news for #Twitter users was contained in a press statement signed by Segun Adeyemi, Special Assistant (Media) to the Minister of Information and Culture, Laid Mohammed and made available to journalists on Tuesday in Abuja.

The statement read in parts: “President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the composition of the Federal
Government’s Team to engage with Twitter over the recent suspension of the operations of the microblogging and social networking service in Nigeria.

“The approval was announced in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who will chair the team.

“The Federal Government’s team also comprises the Attorney General of
the Federation and Honourable Minister of Justice; Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy; Honourable Minister of Foreign
Affairs; Honourable Minister of Works and Housing; Honourable Minister
of State for Labour and Employment as well as other relevant government agencies.

“Following the indefinite suspension of its operations in Nigeria, for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate
existence, Twitter wrote to President Buhari seeking to engage with the Federal Government over the suspension, with a view to charting a
path forward”.
