The federal government has denied claims that it was responsible for the outage experienced by Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram in the country on Monday.
The social media platforms owned by American, Mark Zuckerberg, had experienced global outage for many hours.
Some Nigerians were said to have accused the federal government of the downtime, following its insistence on regulating social media.
Twitter has not been allowed to operate in Nigeria, three months after it was suspended by the federal government in June.
But Bashir Ahmed, a presidential aide, debunked the claim in a post on Snapchat.
“Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are all down for few hours now. The federal government is not responsible as claimed by some people. The three platforms are not working in most parts of the world, not only in Nigeria,” he wrote on Monday night.
The platforms were restored in the early hours of Tuesday, with Facebook saying the disruptions were caused by “configuration changes to routers.”
