Twitter Has Agreed To FG’s Conditions -Keyamo

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has said microblogging platform Twitter has agreed to the terms laid down by the Federal Government.

This is as he stated that the committee set up by the Federal Government to look into its ban of Twitter is making progress.

Keyamo who is a member of the committee disclosed this during an interview with Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Sunday.

“The reason the president took that step is to recalibrate our relationship with Twitter and not to drive them away from our country.

“That recalibration, we have started it and the President graciously added me to the committee.

“We also set up a technical committee to interface with Twitter and come up with a lot of conditions for them to fulfill for us to lift the suspension.

“It was Twitter that reached out to the Federal Government to say they want to know what and what they can do to straighten up the relationship with the Federal Government and so, we have gone far but I may not, at this forum, let out a lot but we gave them a lot of conditions and they have agreed to all the conditions,” he stated.
