“To be honest, we’ve come a long way. I won’t go into detail, but we’ve come a long way,” the minister said.

“To tell you the truth, it’ll be very soon. Simply take my word for it. Even Twitter provided an update on our discussions with them.

“They said it was quite productive and respectful if I quote them correctly. When it comes to how soon is soon, we’re only talking about a few more days if the operation has been successful for a hundred days.

“I can assure Nigerians that we are aware of their concerns, and both parties are working diligently to bring the matter to a conclusion.”

According to Lai Mohammed, the government is working diligently to restore Twitter’s operations with 100 days.

“I can tell you that Twitter will restore less than the time it has been on suspension”.

The Commonwealth is closely monitoring repression in Nigeria and ban on  Twitter.

Nigeria shut down Twitter on June 4 after the social media giant removed a tweet from President Muhammadu Buhari due to a “violation of the company’s abusive behaviour policy.”

Telecommunications companies were suspended the next day.

North Korea, China, and Iran are among the countries that have suspended their use of social media platforms.

Despite this, many people in the country have devised ways to circumvent the ban, including the use of virtual private networks (VPNs) (VPNs).
