At a joint press conference on Monday to mark 100 days since the ban, the organisations, including Enough Is Enough (EiE) Nigeria, Paradigm Initiative (PIN), the Media Rights Agenda (MRA), and the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), all took a critical look at the origin of the ban, the blatant disregard for rule-of-law by the federal government and the ban’s dire consequences to the economy and the citizenry of Nigeria.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, gave the assurance while briefing State House correspondents at the end of Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the First Lady’s Conference room, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Minister made the remarks in Birnin Kudu, Jigawa State, when he led a Federal Government delegation on an inspection of Malam Alu Agro Allied Company Limited, which also hosts the tallest national flag pole in Nigeria and the second in Africa at 50 metres high.
