Widely-used microblogging platform, Twitter on Monday, September 13, 2021, has stated that it is still in talks with the Buhari administration to address the lingering statement over restoration of its services in Nigeria.

The statement came after the controversial ban hit 100 days.

Rights activists had also expressed fears that the regime was not in a hurry to rescind its action and allow the constitutional rights of Nigerians to prevail.

“Discussions with the Nigerian government have been respectful and productive – we look forward to seeing the service restored very soon.

"We continue to engage with the Nigerian government to discuss why Twitter has been blocked and ways to resolve the matter. We are committed to charting a path forward to the restoration of Twitter for everyone in Nigeria,” a Twitter spokesperson revealed.
