President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, finally commented on the Federal Government-imposed indefinite suspension on social media giant, Twitter, in Nigeria.
Speaking during a briefing in Abuja to mark the second anniversary of the 9th Senate, Lawan admitted that the country needs Twitter, vice versa, according to The Nation,
WUZUPNIGERIA reported that the Federal Government, through the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, announced the Twitter ban last Friday.
However, speaking about a week after, Lawan called for an amicable resolution of the feud between the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), and Jack Dorsey-owned Twitter.
Lawan said: “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 learnt our lessons.”
He added, “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.”
