The National leader of the All Progressives Congress and aspirant in the 2023 presidential race, Bola Tinubu, has reacted to the lifting of ban on Twitter.

According to him, Twitter, could be misused by Nigerians, noting that the the Nigerian government should be commended for lifting the suspension and granting “safe return of access.”

He added that social media including Twitter enabled the social and economic empowerment of Nigerians, adding  that he was happy the government recognised this.

On Wednesday, the Nigerian government lifted the suspension of Twitter operations in the country following approval by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Tinubu tweeted, “Social media – indeed all media – including Twitter, are a means for us to all communicate, report, share and engage with stories and each other; to enable economic and social empowerment for Nigerians. But they can be and sometimes are misused.

“I commend the FG for recognising these aspects and most importantly, concluding negotiations for the safe return of access to Twitter to the millions of Nigerians who use it, daily. Welcome back, one and all.”
