Asked whether he was in support of the ban or not, Ogunlesi said: “Ahm well, so I, I, I, you know, I’m not, you know, the government of Nigeria has made a decision.

“You know aah.. and for me, no it’s so, I’m not sure that’s the question you should be asking me.”

Pressed to give a yes or no answer, the presidential aide said: “I think it’s a win-win actually for both twitter and the government of Nigeria.

“That’s certainly the view I get out of the um negotiations. It’s a win-win for both parties and ehm, I’m happy about that?”
