The condition was disclosed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, during a meeting with some envoys of US, UK, Canada in Abuja on Monday.

The minister noted that Twitter’s operations in Nigeria will be restored only if the platform can be used “responsibly”.

“We are not saying that Twitter is threatening the country or any such thing; why we have taken this measure is to stop them to be used as platforms for destabilisation and facilitation of criminality or encouragement of criminalities,” the minister stated.

The Federal Government had earlier invited the envoys of the EU, US, UK, and others following their criticism of the Twitter ban.
