The Special Assistant to the President on Digital/New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi, has said the Twitter ban is a win-win for both the government and the US-based social media company. Ogunlesi said this in a live interview with CNN while answering a question regarding his stand on the ban.
He said, “I think it is a win-win for Twitter and the government of Nigeria. That is the view I get from the negotiations.”
“We are very close to a resolution. It has been a peaceful and positive conversation. Both sides have benefitted from listening to each other and sharing their views,” he added.
Ogunlesi refused to give a straight answer if the ban was triggered by Twitter taking down the President’s tweet for violating its Terms of Service.
Meanwhile, NetBlocks Cost of Shutdown Tool said Nigeria has reportedly lost approximately N272bn since the ban started on June 4.
