Social Media: SERAP threatens court action against NASS, Northern Govs
The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) on Tuesday reaffirmed its opposition to any attempt by the federal government to come up with new bills aimed at stifling the social media operations in the country.
It specifically threatened to sue the National Assembly and the Northern Governors’ Forum if any social media bill is passed and signed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
SERAP said this in a tweet on Tuesday while reacting to a proposal by the northern governors for more social media regulations in the wake of the #EndSARS protests.
The tweet read, “We’ll sue the Northern Governors’ Forum and the National Assembly if any social media bill is passed and signed by President Buhari. Nigerians have a right to freedom of expression online. We won’t accept any illegal attempts to interfere with that right #NoToSocialMediaBill.”
