Senate Begins Public Hearing On Social Media Bill...

Nigeria Senate on Monday commenced the public hearing on the controversial bill, “Protection of Internet from Falsehoods, Manipulations and other Related Matters Bill, 2019.

This Bill is also known as the social media bill...

The public hearing which is a parliamentary traditional way of harnessing opinion from outsiders was being conducted after four months of the introduction of bill.

The bill which was sponsored by Senator Mohammed Sani Musa passed second reading on 20th November, 2019 amid public scepticism that there were heinous intents behind the bill.

However, at Monday’s hearing, it was a well attended event as so many civil society organizations, heads of private and government agencies are present and fully armed to present their opinion on the bill.

There were also protesters at the entrance to the National Assembly struggling with security agents who insisted that they must not be allowed to enter.

Protesters’ views are against the passage of the bill.

  1. Hmmmm, they know how powerful the social media is.

    They used it against the former President. They don't want anyone to use it against them.

  2. If they ban social media in Nigeria, it will save a lot of girls from spoiling and save a lot of marriages.
    Save a lot of souls from pornography.
    But the Nigerian senate is pathetically inept and docile.
