Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has commented on the lifting of the seven month suspension of Twitter operations by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
In a social media post on Thursday, Atiku said the ban affected many small businesses.
“The effects of the #TwitterBan, particularly on small businesses, was evident for all to see. I am glad that the ban has finally been lifted, and our young people who are already dealing with the challenging business environment can now have a breath of fresh air to thrive,” he said.
Dateline Nigeria reports that the lifting of the ban was announced on Wednesday by the Director General of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Mal Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi.
He said the suspension was lifted after Twitter agreed to some resolutions reached by both parties.
