Recall the Nigerian government shut down Twitter’s operations in the country in June, claiming it was endangering the Country’s existence.

President Muhammadu Buhari had previously posted a message about south-easterners on Twitter, which many Nigerians found offensive and deleted by Twitter.

However, Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for the Niger Delta, said on Sunday Channels TV that Twitter had agreed to meet all of the conditions imposed by the Nigerian government as a condition for lifting the ban.
