The Federal Government of Nigeria has lifted the ban on Twitter that has been in place since June.
The Buhari-led administration had hinted on Wednesday that the ban would be lifted by midnight.
The ban on the micro-blogging website has thrown most businesses into chaos, while others have shut down, as many youths depend on Twitter for their businesses.
After lifting the ban, Garba Shehu, Buhari’s Aide said, “Welcome back! Let me join fellow countrymen and women in welcoming the resolution of the impasse between the Federal Government of Nigeria and Twitter Inc., leading to the laying of a “foundation for a mutually beneficial future with endless possibilities.
“I join the leaders of government in appreciating all Nigerians, “especially the vibrant Nigerian youths who have borne with the long wait to resolve this impasse,” and as the government statement clearly says, the gains made from this shared national sacrifice are immeasurable.
“We hope that this be appreciated by all. The nation comes first.
Once again, welcome back!
