The Federal Government through the Ministry of Information and Culture has suspended the operations of popular social micro-blogging platform, Twitter in the country.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday,
citing the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.

The Minister said the Federal Government has also directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to immediately commence the process of licensing all OTT and social media operations in Nigeria.

The latest decision has sparked reaction on social media as Nigerians have taken to their handles to react.
