“All I can say is that the recommendations we are going to make will not only be applicable to Twitter but they will be applicable to all OTTs and other social media platforms in Nigeria.

“Today, we are dealing with Twitter, we don’t want a situation where we will be dealing with Facebook tomorrow and Instagram the next day. Our recommendations will be very comprehensive,” Mohammed said.

When asked on likely date the Twitter ban will be lifted, the minister said “last night, the ministerial team met under my chairmanship and we reviewed the position of things.

“I want everyone to wait for the committee to officially give its reports to the president but things are looking very positive and rosy,” he added.
