Senate president, Ahmad Lawan, has finally spoken about the Federal Government decision to suspend the operation of the microblogging platform Twitter in Nigeria.

Lawan while speaking at a news briefing in Abuja, on Friday to mark his administration’s second year in office said Nigeria needs the social media platform just as it needs the country.

He assured Nigerians that the Federal Government and Twitter would eventually resolve their difference soon.

He said, “The Honorable Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has informed Nigerians that the government is talking with Twitter to resolve this matter.

“Our belief is that Nigeria needs Twitter just as much as Twitter needs Nigeria.

“We believe that the matter between Twitter and the Federal Government of Nigeria will be resolved.

“But beyond that, I’m an optimist, I believe all of us will have learnt our lessons,” he said
