“Regarding the specifics around Twitter, I cannot sit down here with all of the responsibilities that I have and fly the commander in chief of the armed forces. He would have the prognosis and security information that I do not have and I cannot begin to say that was it done is right or wrong.”

Sanwo-Olu however suggested that both sides — Twitter and the Federal Government — should come together to resolve the issues at hand.

“On both sides, there are issues that can be resolved between Twitter and the Government and I think what they’ve done is not a ban but a suspension like they said, so in the period of suspension let us sit down…we need to have that conversation with them,” he explained.
