President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant for New Media, Bashir Ahmaad, responded to Nigeria’s protest against the Social Media Law.
Goldenbaze got information that the Senate passed a second reading on Wednesday of a law sponsored by Senator Musa Mohammed Sani, who represented the Senate District of Niger. This will limit cyberspace violations of citizens if authorized by law.
Some Nigerians took to their Twitter page signing a petition to stop the passage of the bill.
Bashir Ahmaad responding to a post on his Twitter page, commended Nigerians seeking an end to the passage of the bill.
Ahmaad advised Migerians to reach out to different senators to take down the bill.
According to him, the social media bill will be taken down when all Nigerians say no to it.
Ahmaad wrote: “Bravo, Jeffrey! So you should support or reject the Social Media Act, contact and talk with your senators directly, they are our representatives.
“If we all say no to the social media bill, the bill will honestly be cut.”
