"Lai Mohammed insisted on the ban and asked politicians to rise beyond various divisions and queue behind the country’s decision to ban the microblogging site.

The Federal government, on Wednesday, disclosed that the management of tech giant, Twitter, has reached out for dialogue.

Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, made this known while addressing State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council.

According to him, the ban has so far been very effective following reports of Twitter’s huge financial losses running into billions.

He maintained that Twitter has been a platform of choice for separatists to thrive and would be disallowed from operating until it is duly registered, licensed, and operates within regulations.

When asked about the law under which Nigerians who violate the Twitter ban would be prosecuted, the minister refrained from answering and asked that the Attorney General of the federation provide answers.

Lai Mohammed, however, insisted on the ban and asked politicians to rise beyond various divisions and queue behind the country’s decision to ban the microblogging site.
