Twitter Ban in Nigeria- Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, speaks on the ban of Twitter in the country

The ban of Twitter in Nigeria which boasts of 40million users of the Micro-blogging platform has caused a serious controversy online following a deleted tweet of Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari.

The Twitter ban in Nigeria has attracted the comment of the senate president of Nigeria. Ahmed Lawan.

Recall that the Minister of information and Tourism, Lai Mohammed, last Friday authorized the indefinite ban of Twitter’s operations in the country.

The government was compelled to intervene, according to Lai Mohammed, because of the constant use of the platform for practices that endanger Nigeria’s corporate life.

The Twitter ban in Nigeria has sparked significant controversy, with many Nigerians opposing the action.

According to report, the senate president Ahmed Lawan while speaking at a briefing in Abuja to mark the second anniversary of the 9th Senate on Friday, he proclaimed

Our belief is that Nigeria needs Twitter just as Twitter needs Nigeria. Our expectation is that we will be able to resolve this issue. But beyond that, I am optimistic and I believe that all of us would have learned our lessons.

I believe this is the worst level we could get to. We cannot go beyond this level, it could only be better.

I believe we are going to have a reversal of this situation very soon. We shouldn’t despair, we shouldn’t be despondent.

We should have hope and optimism that our situation will be better
