The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, has threatened to sue the National Assembly and the Northern Governors’ Forum over the proposed social media bill.
SERAP in a series of tweets on Tuesday said the group would sue them if the social media bill is passed and signed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The threat was made while reacting to the 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.”
