Social Media: NBA President Reacts To FG Plan To Regulate, And Control Social Media


Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) President, Olumide Akpata has declined President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration plans to regulate, and control social media in Nigeria. He disclosed this on Sunday when he appeared on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

In his argument, Akpata pointed out that the move by the federal government was suspicious, and the regulation is also wrong.

He expressed that social media is regulated already, adding that laws are already in place that ensures such. He stated that government can’t and shouldn’t even be thinking of shutting down the social media in the country but may only work with relevant stakeholders to make adjustments to existing laws based on current realities.

Recall that some days ago, Minister for Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed stated that the government had plans to regulate social media to prevent fake news from breaking the country.
