We Have Registered In Nigeria- Twitter

Nigeria suspended the microblogging site, Twitter last June after a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari, that referenced the civil war, was deleted.

Twitter had said the post violated its rules; the government accused the company of taking sides.

The seven-month ban was lifted in January after Twitter agreed to various conditions, one of which was that it register in Nigeria before March.

Many Nigerians had used Virtual Private Network, VPN to bypass the ban.

This was a major government demand to end its ban.

Twitter now says it has “established a legal entity in Nigeria”

A Twitter representative confirmed to the BBC that the company now had a legal presence in Nigeria but did not state when this had happened.

The company also told the BBC that it was complying with tax obligations in Nigeria, as it does globally.

Last year, Twitter announced that it was opening its African headquarters in Ghana.

Twitter has been in the news recently after its board agreed to a $44bn takeover offer from the billionaire Elon Musk.
