The House of Representatives on Thursday rejected the lifting of Twitter suspension.

The rejection came while the House was considering the report of its committee on the matter.

Recall that the House had mandated its committees on Information, ICT, Intelligence, Justice and Orientation to investigate the circumstances of the suspension by the Federal Government.

At the consideration of the report, Deputy Minority Leader of the House, Toby Okechukwu, suggested an amendment to one of the recommendations.

Seconded by another member, the motion was, however, rejected by the majority of the House when put to the vote.
