The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has ended his quiet on the suspension of micro blogging and social network platform, Twitter, in Nigeria.
Review that the Minister of Information and Tourism, Lai Mohammed, had last Friday declared the uncertain suspension of Twitter’s activities in the country.
Mohammed expressed that the public authority had to act as a result of “the steady utilization of the stage for exercises that are fit for subverting Nigeria’s corporate presence.”
The suspension of Twitter has kept on starting boundless shock, with numerous Nigerians denouncing the move.
Responding to the ban, Lawan said that Nigeria and Twitter need one another.
He talked at a preparation in Abuja to stamp the second commemoration of the ninth Senate on Friday.
“Our belief is that Nigeria needs Twitter just as Twitter needs Nigeria,“ Lawan said.
“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.”
“I believe this is the worst level we could get to. We cannot go beyond this level, it could only be better.
“I believe we are going to have a reversal of this situation very soon. We shouldn’t despair, we shouldn’t be despondent. We should have hope and optimism that our situation will be better.”
