President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has finally waded in on the Federal Government-imposed indefinite suspension of Twitter in Nigeria.
Speaking during a briefing in Abuja to mark the second anniversary of the 9th Senate, Lawan admitted that the country needs Twitter, vice versa.
Lawan, who has been accused of leading a rubberstamp senate, called for an amicable resolution of the feud between the Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government and Jack Dorsey-owned Twitter.
“Our belief is that Nigeria needs Twitter just as Twitter needs Nigeria. Our expectation is that we will be able to resolve this issue.
“But beyond that, I am optimistic and I believe that all of us would have learnt our lessons.”
The senate president added, “I believe this is the worst level we could get to. We cannot go beyond this level, it could only be better.
“I believe we are going to have a reversal of this situation very soon. We shouldn’t despair, we shouldn’t be despondent. We should have hope and optimism that our situation will be better.”
