Federal Government Plans On Regulating The Use Of Social Media

SocialMediaIconcollageThe Bureau of Public Enterprises says it plans to roll out policies and the legal framework for the regulation of the social media in Nigeria.

The DG of the privatisation agency, Mr. Benjamin Dikki, said this at a retreat for non-management staff of the organization. Dikki frowned on the unregulated posting of what he called offensive materials on the various social networking sites. He said this plan was in line with BPE’s reform mandate to initiate necessary policies and the legal framework for the regulation of the social media in the country. “As it now obtains, all manner of things are uploaded on the various platforms of the social media without recourse to age and sensibilities of the users. This is not good enough,” he said.

    No! No! Fucking no! The imposing of one single rule for whatever noble reason will only create doorways for the restriction of people’s freedom. This nonsense should be stopped!

    I guess Oga Jona and his cohorts wants to reduce the wonderful level of truth lashing and facts finding notifications they receive in red led colour every moment. Lemme watch and see if they won’t be infringing on all my privacy, association and thought rights…. which am sure are guaranteed beyond the four walls of the Federal Republic if Nigeria…..Lmao
