U.S Asks FG to Reverse Twitter Ban Immediately
The US Mission in Nigeria has called on the federal government to immediately reverse its ban on Twitter.
This was made known via a Facebook post on Wednesday 9th June, stating that Nigeria has over 40million on the micro-blogging site and banning it will not be beneficial to the citizens and its ban is nothing more than a state sanctioned denial of free speech.

There are nearly 40 M Twitter users in #Nigeria, and the country is home to Africa’s largest tech hub. This suspension is nothing more than state-sanctioned denial of free speech and should be reversed immediately. #KeepitOn – USAID – US Agency for International Development Administrator Samantha Power
