Nigeria needs Twitter- Senate President Asserts


In reaction to the recent suspension of Twitter operations in Nigeria, the Senate President of Nigeria, Ahmad Lawan has asserted that the country needs the platform.

While speaking at a media briefing in Abuja on Friday, June 11, to mark the second anniversary of the 9th assembly, Lawan stated that Nigeria and Twitter need each other. Hence, he called for an amicable resolution of the feud with Twitter.

“Our belief is that Nigeria needs Twitter just as Twitter needs Nigeria. Our expectation is that we will be able to resolve this issue. But beyond that, I am optimistic and I believe that all of us would have learnt our lessons,” he explained.

Recall that the Federal government suspended the operations of the microblogging site on June 4, days after it deleted a tweet by President Buhari referencing the Civil war.
