Mohammed, who was responding to a question from a participant at the Nigerian International Partnership Forum in Paris, France, yesterday said the platform was only suspended.

The minister stressed that the lifting of Twitter’s suspension was delayed because the platform had only met 10 out of 12 conditions spelt out by the federal government on the matter.

He also insisted that the suspension of the platform has nothing to do with Buhari.

He, however, declared that the matter would soon be resolved.

Mohammed said: “I want to categorically say that Twitter was not banned in Nigeria, it was only suspended. So, Twitter was never banned, it was suspended.

“Also, the suspension has nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari.
