Minister of Information and National Orientation Mohammed Idris said President Tinubu ordered the suspension following deliberations by members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

Idris disclosed this at the State House in Abuja on Tuesday after the FEC meeting.

He added that the cybersecurity levy was thoroughly discussed at the FEC meeting, and that the president is not insensitive to the feelings of Nigerians.
