Protest Against Social Media Bill

A draft bill is being discussed in the Nigerian senate which aims to punish people who post false information against the government on social media.

People could face up to seven years in prison or $25,000 or both. NIgerians have been reacting mostly against the bill. President Buhari has opposed the bill. Most likely this bill will not pass if it is presented to the floor however it is ridiculous that is even being considered.
