Breaking: FG makes final decision, says nothing will stop regulation of social media





- FG has made final decision of the proposed regulation of social media space

- The declaration was made on Thursday, November 14, by the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed

- Mohammed, however, said that the government would not be deterred by the people's criticisms over its plan

Despite the criticisms that greeted the proposed regulation of social media space, the federal government has said that nothing would stop the plan.

The nation reports that the declaration was made on Thursday, November 14, by the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed.

Legit.ng gathered that the minister stated this in Abuja during an audience with online publishers.

He declared that no amount of criticism will deter the government from going ahead with the proposed measure.

He insisted it was the right thing to do as Nigeria was not alone in this regard.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the centre for social justice, equity and transparency alleged that the prolific publication of fake or non-factual news items became a major contributor to the failure of the Nigerian military to end insurgency in Nigeria.

It was reported that the organisation in its new report said that certain individuals and groups were in the business of peddling falsehood are jeopardizing the progress of the Nigerian military.

The main opposition party in the country, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had referred to the capital punishment proposed by the hate speech bill as savage and murderous.

The PDP said that even though it did not support hate speech from anyone, the bill was not only undemocratic but also unconstitutional.

The opposition party, on its official Twitter page, had claimed that the APC-led federal government was trying to use the bill to suppress those it regards as its enemies as it added that Nigeria has enough laws that prohibit unlawful use of freedom of speech.

PDP had also noted that for the talk of such a bill to come up again at the Senate even when Nigerians kicked against it in 2018, indicated the desperation of the APC to enslave Nigerians.
