Twitter has agreed to open an office in Nigeria in 2022, according to the Federal Government.
After briefing State House correspondents at the end of the virtual Federal Executive Council, Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, confirmed this.
He went on to say that the Federal Government’s interaction with Twitter has been extremely positive and free of hostility.
”We have made it clear what we expect from Twitter,” the Minister said. The end of a peaceful resolution is very near.
‘We are grateful for Nigerians’ patience. I’d like to reassure you that we’ve made incredible progress. We’ve had physical and written encounters with Twitter. In fact, we’re almost there.
“They (Twitter) have been very flexible, and the conversation has not been acrimonious.”
Mohammed added that, despite the fact that the two are yet to reach an agreement in three to four areas, Twitter has agreed to open an office in the country in 2022.
