Nigeria Govt. lists agreement reached with Twitter by saintbillion(m) : 9:44 am

Nigeria Govt. lists agreement reached with Twitter
The federal government has listed the agreement reached with Twitter before suspending the ban on the social media giant's operation in the country.



Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, Director-General of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) had announced that lifting of the ban will be effective from midnight, January 13, 2022.



Some of the agreements reached include legal registration of operations, taxation, and managing prohibited publications in line with Nigerian laws.



The statement read;



“The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) directs me to inform the public that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the lifting of the suspension of Twitter operation in Nigeria effective from 12am tonight, January 13.

“The approval was given following a memo written to the President by the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Ali Ibrahim.

“In the memo, the Minister updates and requests the President’s approval for the lifting based on the Technical Committee Nigeria-Twitter Engagement’s recommendation.

“The FGN has asked Twitter to fulfil some conditions before restoring its services.

“These conditions addressed legal registration of operations, taxation, and managing prohibited publication in line with Nigerian laws.

“Twitter has agreed to meet all the conditions set by the FGN.

“Consequently, the FGN and Twitter have decided on an execution timeline, which has started this week.

“Our engagement with Twitter opens a new chapter in global digital diplomacy and sets a new operational template for Twitter to come back stronger for the benefit of Nigerians.”



The agreement reached with Twitter include;



“Twitter has committed to establishing a legal entity in Nigeria during the first quarter of 2022.

“The legal entity will register with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).

“The establishment of the entity is Twitter’s first step in demonstrating its long-term commitment to Nigeria.

“Twitter has agreed to appoint a designated country representative to interface with Nigerian authorities.

“The Global Public Policy team is also directly available through a dedicated communication channel.

“Twitter has agreed to comply with applicable tax obligations on its operations under Nigerian law.

“Twitter has agreed to enrol Nigeria in its Partner Support and Law Enforcement Portals.

“The Partner Support Portal provides a direct channel for government officials and Twitter staff to manage prohibited content that violates Twitter community rules.

“At the same time, the Law Enforcement Portal provides a channel for the law enforcement agencies to submit a report with a legal justification where it suspects that content violates Nigerian Laws.

“Taken together, these represent a comprehensive compliance apparatus.

“Twitter has agreed to act with a respectful acknowledgement of Nigerian laws and the national culture and history on which such legislation has been built and work with the FGN and the broader industry to develop a Code of Conduct in line with global best practices, applicable in almost all developed countries.

“Therefore, the FGN lifts the suspension of the Twitter operations in Nigeria from midnight of 13th January 2022.

“We encourage all users of the Twitter platform to maintain ethical behaviour and refrain from promoting divisive, dangerous, and distasteful information on the platform.

“As patriotic citizens, we need to be mindful that anything illegal offline is also illegal online and that committing a crime using a Nigerian Internet Protocol (IP) is synonymous with committing a crime within our jurisdiction.

“Considering Twitter’s influence on our democracy, our economy, and the very fabric of our corporate existence as a Nation, our priority is to adapt, not ban, Twitter.

“The FGN is committed to working with Twitter to do anything possible to help Nigerians align and navigate Twitter algorithmic design to realise its potentials while avoiding its perils.

“In his approval, the President appreciates the Presidential Committee led by the Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Alh Lai Mohammed, for the supervisory role and guidance given to the Technical Committee during the engagement.

“Similarly, the Presidential Committee commends the Technical Committee for a professional, robust and productive engagement with Twitter Inc.

“It also appreciates Government Regulatory Agencies and Internet Service Providers who implemented the FGN’s directives during the suspension.”

Have you forgotten that this is not your country's forum.

you should have written Nigerian govt

Re: Nigeria Govt. lists agreement reached with Twitter by planetE(m) : 12:46 pm

@Emocruize , don't mind him. It is not his fault. I have to blame the moderators of this forum. They are not regulating what people post.

It baffles me a lot. I even contacted one of the moderators , she is yet to give me any response.

If the moderators won't do their job perfectly, they can just close down this forum

It is very boring. It is not as active as I initially thought

Re: Nigeria Govt. lists agreement reached with Twitter by jamesMrley1(m) : 12:47 pm

As a Ghanaian who observed the tussle from outside, I think your government had no choice but to lift the ban because they need to use the App for political marketing ahead of your coming 2023 election...what do you guys think?

Re: Nigeria Govt. lists agreement reached with Twitter by planetE(m) : 12:54 pm

@JamesMrley1 , your love for Nigeria knowns no bound.

You are really obsessed with the happenings in Nigeria

But why do you guys have to take things too personal without considering other factors? Check my other post, I do put (Nigeria) if I don't get it here on this there are better ways of getting my attention rather than this Charlie. The fact I don't live in Ghana doesn't makes me a foreigner

Alright. Do you use Google Adsense on your website ?

Re: Nigeria Govt. lists agreement reached with Twitter by saintbillion(m) : 1:38 pm

planetE:

You have other Nigerian forums that you can post your stuffs to.
What is a forum meant for? It is only for indigenes? Why exposing hatred for a particular country? You are the reason Africans can't unit. So Nigeria news means nothing to you? Don't you have Ghanaians in Nigeria? Village man. You just get me p!ss up. I think the moderators here need to see this you are tribalist and that is against rule 1 of this forum. The rules of this forum never talk on post news only about Ghana. Do you know the meaning of updates and forum?

It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own self-interest. We address ourselves not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities, but of their advantages. I saw an opportunity I grabbed it. Please let's work hand in hand and build this forum. Your hatred won't take you to anywhere, you too can do more to update this forum and make it look more attractive. You have already derail the thread. I wish the moderators can take down the thread to avoid visitors and foreigners from thinking all Ghanaians have your same mentality. I'll keep on updating the forum with news. I wish there a foreigner affairs section.

If only you know the meaning of advertisement and source. I joined this forum on the 9th of January, check my previous post. You won't see any links to the thinks I posted, I was attracted to one thing about this forum and I started posting I loved it. I also saw the advert of this forum somewhere not even here. Look dear you too can do better. Update be an active member of your own forum by giving more updates and not been a tribalist. I'll keep on updating this forum as long as I'm playing according to the rules

You know in your heart that you are marketing your blogspot indirectly on this forum. That's not a good tactics.

Your motive is full of selfishness
