Social media activists have taken the protest against the “Frivolous Petitions (Prohibitions, Etc.) Bill, 2015″ from twitter and to the National Assembly, Abuja. The protest tagged #NoToSocialMediaBill took off from Unity Fountain, Maitama, Abuja.
The bill is sponsored by Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah, the Deputy Senate Leader, who represents Kebbi South Senatorial District, and has been the source of a lot of angst on social media in the past few days. Activists say the bill would restrict freedom of expression.
