Nigeria Twitter ban momentary, says President


Lagos, June 6

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday said a state-wide ban on Twitter which prompted international condemnation over the weekend was only a temporary measure in response to misinformation.

The Information Ministry’s announcement that it had suspended access to Twitter came days after the micr-blogging platform removed one of the President’s tweets where made a reference to the country’s 30-month civil war in 1967-1970, warning “those who wanted the government to fail” to desist from fomenting trouble. —IANS
