Earlier this week, the Nigerian government indefinitely suspended Twitter in the country after it removed a contentious tweet that President Muhammadu Buhari made about a secessionist movement.
On Thursday, Koo co-founder and CEO Aprameya Radhakrishna announced that the Government of Nigeria has now joined the platform.
Radhakrishna also teased that the platform may soon launch local language support in Nigeria.
A few days ago, the Indian microblogging site also made its debut in Nigeria.
The government’s first post on Koo announced the release of a documentary on Nigeria that will be aired on 12 June in commemoration of Democracy Day.
Meanwhile, Twitter said on 5 June that it was “deeply concerned” by the blocking on Twitter in Nigeria. It also said that it is working to restore Twitter access in the country.
