There are only two conditions yet-to-be met by Twitter, the Federal Government said yesterday.

Information, Culture and Tourism Minister Lai Mohammed said the government has not lifted the suspension on the microblogging and social networking service because it has met 10 of the 12 conditions given to it.

Raising the hope of Nigerians that all issues with the social media firm will be resolved in a matter of time, the minister clarified that the Twitter suspension had nothing to do with issues bordering on President Muhammadu Buhari.

The minister made the clarifications while responding to a question from a participant at Nigeria International Partnership Forum in Paris.

Most investors at the forum were eager to know the circumstances that led to the suspension of Twitter.

Mohammed, who spoke in fluent French, caught his audience unawares.

A lady participant, who sought clarification on the ban, was perplexed by the minister’s mastery of French.

The minister took time to explain why the suspension of Twitter was yet-to-be lifted.

He said: “I want to categorically say that Twitter was not banned by Nigeria, it was only suspended. So, Twitter was never banned, it was suspended.

“Also, the suspension has nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari. The correspondences between us and Twitter have reached advanced stage. I want to say that the correspondences and the exchanges have been fruitful.
