FG plans to regulate use of social media in Nigeria

at Wednesday, September 25, 2013

⁠

The Bureau of Public Enterprises says it plans to roll out policies and the legal framework for the regulation of the social media in Nigeria.



Director General of the privatisation agency, Mr. Benjamin Dikki, said this at a retreat for non-management staff of the organisation, according to a statement made available to our correspondent in Abuja on Tuesday by BPE spokesman, Mr. Chigbo Anichebe.

At the retreat, held at Kuchikau, Nasarawa State, Dikki frowned on the unregulated posting of what he called offensive materials on the various social networking sites.

Dikki said this plan was in line with BPE’s reform mandate to initiate necessary policies and the legal framework for the regulation of the social media in the country.

He said, “As it now obtains, all manner of things are uploaded on the various platforms of the social media without recourse to age and sensibilities of the users. This is not good enough.”

I'm not aware of any government that has successfully regulated social media anywhere, except for China.

Is Nigeria becoming autocratic?

too much lies online. There is no absolute freedom anyway, post trash online in the us, you get sued big time. Make a google search for terrorist materials, the feds will pay you a visit.

When did it become the job of the BPE to carry out such policies..am certain this man is broke and just wants more money..This is how it's going to pan out. He will write a very interesting proposal and make a good presentation to the FEC. Jonathan in his usual desperation to curtail the amount of insults he receives will immediately dull out huge cash to the BPE to actualize this however impossible project. Fast forward 5 years later this Benjamin Dikko will be a billionaire hustling for presidency or a senate position
