Nigerian Government Reveals Plans To Regulate The Social Media

Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, revelaed during a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday that the federal government is working on regulating social media.....

The minister had announced that online platforms will be regulated, when he inaugurated a seven-man committee, to implement reforms in the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).

According to Mohammed, the reforms that will be implemented by the committee, are recommendations approved by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He also made it clear, that no amount of criticisms will stop the implementation of the approved recommendations.

“Gentlemen, since we launched our reform of the broadcast industry, many Nigerians have reached out to us, demanding that we also look into how to sanitize the social media space.
I can assure you that we are also working on how to inject sanity into the social media space, which, today, is totally out of control.

“No responsible government will sit by and allow fake news and hate speech to dominate its media space, because of the capacity of this menace to exploit our national fault lines to set us against each other and trigger a national conflagration.

“That is why we will continue to evolve ways to tackle fake news and hate speech until we banish both.
Once the committee submits its report, we will immediately kick-start the implementation of the approved measures to inject sanity into our broadcast industry,” he said.

“Many have hailed our efforts at seeking to bring sanity to the airwaves, while some have attacked us and accused us of trying to stifle press freedom or gag
In the first instance, let me say this. No amount of attacks, sponsored or otherwise, will stop the implementation of the approved recommendations.

“And only non-patriots and anarchists will kick against measures aimed at putting an end to fake news and hate speech, especially in our broadcast industry.

“But, as I have been saying, we have no intention of stifling free speech or gagging journalists or anyone. Again, this Administration has no intention of muzzling the media or stifling free speech. Our campaign is against fake news and hate speech.

“However, if you engage in disseminating fake news or hate speech, you need to be worried, because we will not spare you. We cannot allow fake news and hate speech to become free speech, because these Siamese Twins of Evil are capable of inflicting untold damage on our democracy and threatening our national unity,” Mohammed said.
