BREAKING: Senate Introduces Bill To Prohibit Hate Speech

2970
A bill to set up a commission for the prohibition of hate speeches has been introduced on the floor of the Senate.

The Bill which is sponsored by the former Senate spokesman, Senator Abdullahi Sabi, is listed on the order paper and has passed first reading on Tuesday.

Last week, the Senate passed through first reading the Protection from internet falsehood and manipulations Bill 2019.

The proposed legislation seeks to prevent the spreading and broadcasting of falsehood and manipulations using social media platforms via internet broadcasts and transmissions.

This Bill is reminiscent of the Social Media Bill which was introduced in the eight assembly but was not passed because of widespread condemnation of the bill which some Nigerians felt was intended to stifle freedom of expression.

  1. I do accept as true with all the ideas you have offered on your post.
    They are very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very quick for newbies.
    Could you please extend them a little from next time?

    Thanks for the post.

  2. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand
    so much about this, such as you wrote the e book in it
    or something. I think that you just could do with a few percent to
    pressure the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is
    wonderful blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
