The Nigerian communications Commission (NCC) has warned Nigerians that
the cyberspace is not aan venue to promote hatred as there are laws guiding
against such.

Mr Tony Ojobo


This was made known by Mr Tony Ojobo, the director of public affairs of the
commission on Monday, February 22 during a discussion on what the new
media has to do with cybercrime act.


The programme which was part of the week-long Social Media Week was
geared towards examining the issue of cybercrime and how it affects the
new media.

Ojobo who was part of the discussant explained that a lot of laws were
available which internet users have failed to familiarize themselves with. He
noted that people misuse the cyberspace by making xenophobic, comments,
hate speech which are contrary to what is allowed.


He cited an example that if a person receives contents that contained child
pornography and shares with other persons using the internet; the person is
likely to go to prison even though he did not produce the material.
Speaking with naij.com, The NCC public affairs director encouraged the use
of the cyberspace with sense.


“Developed countries don’t want regulation of the internet but it is necessary
in developing countries to prevent cyber-crimes. Nigerians are not reading
the law which is why media users, bloggers and journalist are sometimes
sent to prison when they don’t get their facts right.”


Ojobo explained that the laws were not there to deny Nigerians their freedom
of expression but to prevent people from inciting hatred.

A lot of internet laws are violated on daily basis in this nation. Especially by the so called celebrities (brand ambassadors) who want to flaunt even complete nakednes.s, Gold and the likes.

The law shouldn't just keep talking, let the hammer fall.

Of course in sane climes, sharing of child pornography is a crime. But I know Nigeria isn't a sane society, no wonder several potential paedophiles here have already thrown insults at the man.

I hate pornographic content but NCC should forget about abusive content & hatred. I dont engage myself in hatred against other tribe but APC circulate message of hatred during their campaign through many means which include audio visual, carton etc if they include dont abuse the office of the presidency, they must prepare the office to receive the insult in thousands fold. APC taught Nigerians how to abuse the president.
