Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to approve the publication of Nigeria’s agreement with Twitter.
The federal government lifted the ban on January 12, 2022, seven months after the sanction took effect following the deletion of Buhari’s tweet.
SERAP urged the President to direct the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed to widely publish the details of the agreement.
A letter dated January 15, signed by Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare, said this would ensure that the conditions are not used as pretexts to suppress legitimate discourse.
SERAP stressed the importance of promoting transparency, accountability, and helping to mitigate threats to Nigerians’ rights online, as well as any interference with online privacy in ways that deter freedom and expression.
