Sultan warns FG over moves to ban social media

The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, has cautioned the federal government against the proposal to ban the usage of social media in the country.

The Sultan mentioned this at a special summit on security in Abuja on Wednesday amid concerns that FG is making moves to ban the use of social media as a bill is already in the Senate titled ‘Protection from Internet Falsehood and Manipulation 2019’.

But the Sultan said rather than outrightly banning its usage the government should follow the pattern of countries that successfully regulated it.

The Sultan said, “As lawmakers, what do you do about social media? I’m not saying ban social media but regulate it.

“We’ve seen it happen all over the world. Why can’t Nigeria borrow from that? It’s important for us and I hope this seminar will discuss some of these issues and when you’re ready with your decision, call some of us back, like the national council of traditional rulers. We will sit together once more.”
