The Federal Government of Nigeria has announced the indefinite suspension of microblogging website, Twitter from operating in the country.
The disclosure was made by Information Minister, Alhaji Lai Muhammad in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday.
He revealed that the bam was due to “the persistent use of the platform for activities capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”
This comes just days after a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari was deleted for violating the site’s rules.
However, Twitter has reacted to this. It said it was “deeply concerning” when it heard the news.
