NIGERIANS ARE SAYING NO TO THE SOCIAL MEDIA BILL AFTER IT PASSED THE SECOND READING AT THE SENATE

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to speak against the social media bill with the hashtag #SayNoToSocialMediaBill

OSG earlier reported that the bill was sponsored by Mohammed Sani Musa to regulate the use of social media.

According to the bill, whoever disseminates a wrong information would be fined the sum of N150,000 or a maximum imprisonment of three years or both.

While a corporate organization, like MTN, Glo, 9 mobile that refused to block a false information if it was alerted about it, would be penalised between N5 million to N10 million.

After the bill passed the second reading, Nigerians have taken to their social media pages to criticize it.
