The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has finally spoken up about the suspension of Twitter in Nigeria.
He said the country needs the platform as much as the platform needs Nigeria.
Lawan stated this at a news briefing in Abuja to mark his second year in office.
He said he was convinced that issues between both the Federal Government and Twitter would be resolved eventually.
“The Honourable Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has informed Nigerians that the government is talking with Twitter to resolve this matter.
“Our belief is that Nigeria needs Twitter just as much as Twitter needs Nigeria.
“We believe that the matter between Twitter and the Federal Government of Nigeria will be resolved.
“But beyond that, I’m an optimist, I believe all of us will have learnt our lessons,” he said
