The most widely read newspaper in Nigeria

The Federal Government has shelved plans to force international social network services and digital platforms to register and open offices in Nigeria,The government’s move to ensure that all over-the-top media services register with the National Broadcasting Corporation has also hit a brick wall as the NBC has failed to roll out the modalities for the registration six months after it published an advertorial asking all online platforms to do so.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had said, “What we are saying is that all platforms must register in Nigeria. You must be a corporate entity before you can do business in Nigeria.The commission said in an advertorial that the NBC establishment code empowers the commission to ask the companies to be licensed.

Animal talk. After Twitter's break of necessity, its back again but all must have learnt lessons. Avoid to repeat doing wrong things like nothing has been learnt. VPN Social media is another way the government sample opinions of their citizens and view where the nation is shifting towards. Social media is the voice of common person on the streets. VAT shouldn't come to play on issues of freedom of opinion of common man.

Lol. There was no plan at first and Twitter didn’t agree to any of their demands, they only unbanned twitter for campaign reasons Oloshi impostor See nau? They said Twitter has agreed to register as a business entity in Nigeria as one condition for unbanning, now na shelved plan! 'Lairs' Confuse people No arrangement or agreement with Tweeter,I know FG is lying to cover up their shameless act

It's the network providers the government will run after for the enforcement of social media registration.But it will be too silly of them to do so, cos they are not in control of the net.They only have access to block sites but cannot restrict u bypassing the network with VPN. Connect your NIN to your Twitter account

this administration is very confused

There wasn't any agreement in the 1st place Rubbish See these Very Confused Buhari liars and his Government😕 Can anyone just imagine this? What then was the reason behind the show of force, by banning twitter, when some of us said, its just because twitter deleted Buhari's tweet, some among us refused to agree.

Bro B, if you want to stop anything SM pls go ahead. We can manage ourselves to create what will serve us. After all you removed food from our mouth through twitter ban for months,we survived it. We are getting stronger now. This is so funny 🤣
