The Federal Government says from the 10 demands put forward to lift Twitter suspension, the microblogging and social networking platform has acceded to seven.

 

 

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed disclosed this during an interview with newsmen in Washington, NAN reports.

 

The minister also noted that there is an end in sight of an amicable settlement of the ban.

 

“We believe that even the other three outstanding demands are not really about whether they agreed or not but about timing and scheduling.

“That is what gave me the confidence that we are getting nearer to an agreement,’’ he said.

 

 

The minister said, among the demands made from twitter was for the platform to register as a Nigerian company, pay taxes from revenue made from the country and ensure that harmful content are regulated.

 

“As recently as last week, we exchange correspondence with Twitter, and when I left home a few days ago, we are expecting a reply from them.

 

“It is rather, more left with Twitter to respond to grey areas that we asked them to look into.

 

“We are not inflexible in our negotiation with Twitter because we recognise both the positive and negative aspects of social media,’’ he added.

 

 

He, however, said the Twitter ban had been very effective in the country because they see less harmful and injurious content on social media, adding that they had been more conscious and alert to injurious content likely to threaten national security.
