Nigerian Govt reveals some agreements reached with Twitter

Nigerian Government reveals some of the agreement reached with Twitter.The Nigerian government has listed some of the agreements reached with Twitter before the suspension of its ban.

Recall that the government lifted the ban on Twitter in Nigeria on January 13th.

Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, Director-General of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) revealed that some of the agreements reached with Twitter include legal registration of its operations, taxation, and managing prohibited publications in line with Nigerian laws.

Part of the statement read; “Twitter has agreed to meet all the conditions set by the FGN.

The agreement reached with Twitter include;

“Twitter has committed to establishing a legal entity in Nigeria during the first quarter of 2022.

“The legal entity will register with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).

“The establishment of the entity is Twitter’s first step in demonstrating its long-term commitment to Nigeria.

“Twitter has also agreed to appoint a designated country representative to interface with Nigerian authorities.

“The Global Public Policy team is also directly available through a dedicated communication channel.

The microblogging site also agreed to comply with applicable tax obligations on its operations under Nigerian law.

“Twitter has agreed to enrol Nigeria in its Partner Support and Law Enforcement Portals.

“The Partner Support Portal provides a direct channel for government officials and Twitter staff to manage prohibited content that violates Twitter community rules.

“At the same time, the Law Enforcement Portal provides a channel for the law enforcement agencies to submit a report with a legal justification where it suspects that content violates Nigerian Laws.

“Twitter also complied to act with a respectful acknowledgement of Nigerian laws and the national culture and history on which such legislation has been built and work with the FGN and the broader industry to develop a Code of Conduct in line with global best practices, applicable in almost all developed countries,” the statement added.

The Nigerian government advised citizens to use Twitter to maintain ethical behaviour and refrain from promoting divisive, dangerous, and distasteful information on the platform, adding that committing a crime using a Nigerian Internet Protocol (IP) was synonymous with committing a crime within the country’s jurisdiction.
