This was made known by the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN), while speaking on Channels Television.
Keyamo, stated that the committee constituted by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Twitter, had made significant progress in its negotiation with the micro-blogging platform.
“The reason why the president took that step is to recalibrate our relationship with Twitter and not to drive them away from our country.
“That recalibration, we have started it and the President graciously added me to the committee.
“We also set up a technical committee to interface with Twitter and come up with a lot of conditions for them to fulfill for us to lift the suspension.
“It was Twitter that reached out to the Federal Government to say they want to know what and what they can do to straighten up the relationship with the Federal Government and so, we have gone far but I may not, at this forum, let out a lot but we gave them a lot of conditions and they have agreed to all the conditions.”
