President Buhari has made it clear to
Senators that he will not assent to the
Social Media Bill being pushed forward
by the senate.

President Buhari made his position
known through his Senior Special
assistant to Media and publicity
Shehu Garba.

He said the principle of the bill was
inconsistent with democratic ideals
of free speech enshrined in the
Nigerian constitution, stressing that
he had sworn while coming into
office to uphold the dictates of the

“He is not averse to lawful
regulation, so long as that is done
within the ambit of the constitution
which he swore to uphold.The
President won’t assent to any
legislation that may be inconsistent
with the constitution of Nigeria”,
Garba said.

He further explained that without
free speech, elected representatives
won’t be able to have a good
connection with their electorates “As
a key component of democratic
principles are so emotionally
attached to free speech that they
would defend it with all their might”,
he said.
