The Nigerian Government’s decision to regulate social media bill is an act which must be condemned as it is a motive which is aimed at violating Nigerians right to free speech.

Earlier this week, the Northern Governors forum met to discuss the regulation of social media bill as they believe Social Media is one of the things that gave rise to the EndSars protests.

The Northern Governors Forum held this meeting due to the mass Protest that was held by Brave Nigerian youths who laid down their lives to end all forms of brutalities by security agencies in the country.

The Protest which led to the killing of scores by the Nigerian Army on the 20th of October 2020, was condemned by many including international leaders.

The killing which took place in the urban area of Lagos State had the Governor denying that no one died in the massacre which also led to the Nigerian Army Major General John Enenche said on a News station that the Instagram live video which captured the event was photoshopped.

Why Social Media Bill must not be regulated In Nigeria

The Nigerian governments believe the only way they can put a stop to the Protests and putting a stop to fake news is by regulating social media bills. The regulation of social media bills can come in different ways which are either by banning it completely or controlling what the users can post.

Many citizens opposed the regulation of social media as it is a bill which will violate their rights to speak and criticize the disgusting acts of the Nigerian Governments.

One of the advantages of social media is that it is an avenue for sending and receiving information which can be accessed by many people which easily goes viral.

The disadvantages/dangers of Regulating Social Media is that it will not reduce the crime rate in the country but add more fuel to the fire as it will lead to mass corruption from the Security agencies and the citizens will not be able to criticize it.

The Nigerian Governments and security agencies have been engaging in many unscrupulous activities recently and the only way the citizens are condemning it is through social media.

Nigerians are calling for the Governments to put a stop to any form of Social Media bill regulation with the hashtag #SayNoToSocialMediaBill.
