Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, on Thursday, said the Federal Government is expected to lift the ban on Twitter before the end of the year.

The minister added that the government was awaiting a response on three final requests made to the social media platform.

Twitter had reached an agreement on seven of the ten requests made to them by the Nigerian government but the company is yet to respond on the final three issues.

According to Mohammed, the other issues are: setting up a local office, paying tax locally, and cooperating with the government to regulate content and harmful tweets.

“We certainly want to put this behind us before the end of the year,” Mohammed added.
