Two domestic organisations, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP)] and the Nigerian Bar Association indicated intent to challenge the ban in court, while Twitter itself called the ban ‘deeply concerning’.
Former U.S. President, Donald Trump praised the ban. “Congratulations to the country of Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their president”, Trump said.
Nigeria’s Cultural Minister, Lai Mohammed promised that the ban would be lifted once Twitter submits to local licencing, registration and conditions.
“It will be licenced by the broadcasting commission, and must agree not to allow its platform to be used by those who are promoting activities that are inimical to the corporate existence of Nigeria,”. Mohammed said.
