Nigerians are on the Streets saying #NoToSocialMediaBill



The issue as regards the Social Media Bill has actually been ongoing for years (just incase you don’t know), and it recently got a second reading at the Senate.

The bill, “Protection from Internet Falsehood and Manipulation Bill 2019” was introduced to the senate on November 5, and, if passed, could have social media users who share false information sentenced to prison for 3 years, or asked to pay a fine of ₦150,000.

(And also the protest currently going on Twitter wouldn’t be happening).

Nigerians on Twitter have proceeded to express their disapproval by going to the streets to protest, and also making the hashtag #NoToSocialMediaBill trend on Twitter.

Here’s what is going on:
