Yesterday, a Senator Bala Ibn Na’allah proposed 2-year jail term for offenders of abusive statements on social media. The bill states that anybody or group of persons who publishes any statement in the newspaper or who sends any false text message or post false messages on the social media against another person shall be jailed for two years upon conviction by the law court. The bill was tagged: “A Bill for an Act to Prohibit Frivolous Petitions and other Matters Connected therewith.”
Immediately after this got published, Twitter Nigeria went haywire and started the #NoToSocialMediaBill trend.
Here are some of the realest and definitely funny tweets from the trend.
