“VPN Is Over, Our Batteries Will Last Longer” : Nigerians React Happily To Lifting Of Ban On Twitter

Nigeria’s federal government has lifted the country’s ban on Twitter activities.

This was announced today, January 12, by Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, CCIE, Chairman Technical Committee Nigeria-Twitter Engagement and Director-General National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA).

The clearance came as a consequence of a note addressed to the President by Minister of Communications and Digital Economy Prof Isa Ali Ibrahim, Kashifu stated in a statement.

According to the statement, Twitter has agreed to the conditions set forth by the Federal government, which include establishing a legal entity in Nigeria by the first quarter of 2022, appointing a designated country representative to interface with Nigerian authorities, and complying with applicable tax obligations on its operations under Nigerian law, among other things.

On January 13th, 2022, at 12:01 a.m., the suspension will be lifted.

Nigerians have reacted positively to the news, particularly because those who wanted to use Twitter had to use a VPN to do so.

VPN, they claim, is no longer in use, implying that their phone batteries will last longer. The reactions are captured in the screenshots below.
