Nigeria: Why social media must be regulated

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has expressed that social media must be regulated to protect national interests.

The Speaker stated that social media must be regulated because “everything in life has to be regulated.”

He stated this on Channels TV programme A chat with Young Nigerians on Sunday.

He said the Lower Chamber was yet to take any position on the suspension of microblogging platform Twitter by the Federal Government.

He opined that lawmakers need to hear from all sides in the matter before arriving at a position.

“The social media is the most potent weapon for good and for evil. While we welcome the good, we must prepare over the evil. You cannot use the idea of free speech to destroy me.

“Most democracies in the world today are making efforts to regulate the social media and the National Assembly has been considering regulating the social media for long. But each time the issue comes up, Nigerians kick against it.

“It is something we need to do because we have a responsibility to protect every single citizen in this country and that is what we must do”.
