Minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed made the disclosure to state house correspondents after the meeting of the federal executive council (FEC) on Wednesday.

The meeting, which held at the presidential villa, Abuja, was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He, however said other social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook must also be registered in Nigeria.
