Posted by Thandiubani on Wed 20th Sep, 2023 - tori.ng

Akpabio said the 10th National Assembly will not review the social media regulation bill.

 
Godswill Akpabio, President of the Senate has revealed why the 10th National Assembly will not review the social media regulation bill.
 
According to Akpabio, there are laws already guiding the use of social media in the country.
 
Akpabio, who was represented by the Senate Committee Chairman on ICT, Sen. Shuiab Salisu, stated this at the Parliamentarian Symposium of Africa Internet Governance Forum (AIGF) on Tuesday.
 
The event was hosted by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in Abuja.
 
Akpabio said: “I am not sure that there is going to be a specific bill on social media regulation.
 
“However, there are emailing laws in various areas, social media is just one space.
 
“So, rather than having specific legislation on social media, I will rather say social media is just one platform.
 
“The same way people have used regular media platforms to commit libel.”
