According to him, Twitter reached out to the Federal Government on Wednesday morning for a high-level discussion, dismissing the notion the suspension is not effective. Wondering why Twitter has lost huge financial losses running into billions as a result of the action if such view is genuine, Lai said that the ban has so far been effective. Stating that the freedom of speech has not been stifled by the suspension of Twitter as Nigerians can still use other platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, Lai Mohammed said that the other social media platforms must be registered in the country.

Speaking on the  that the microblogging platform was suspended because it provided an avenue for people threatening the corporate existence of Nigeria, Lai Mohammed stated that the owner of Twitter helped to fund the recent #EndSARS protest while allowing the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, use the platform to call for the killing of policemen. He said Twitter failed to take down Kanu’s tweets despite repeated requests to do so. Mohammed listed conditions that must be met even if there is a discussion with Twitter including that it must now be registered in Nigeria as a business concern.Twitter Has Reached Out To Us, The Ban Is Effective - Lai MohammedTRENDING VIDEO OF THE DAY: Daddy Showkey Breaks Record As He Treks For 6-hours From Ojodu To Ajegunle
