Nigerian information minister: 'This government does not violate anybody's right'
Speaking to DW's Conflict Zone, Lai Mohammed defended Nigeria's human rights record.

Mohammed who oversees the information portfolio for Buhari's government says that "when it comes to freedom of the press we are doing extremely well."

Freedom House found in 2018 that in Nigeria, civil liberties such as the freedoms of speech, of expression, and press freedom are "limited by laws on sedition, criminal defamation, and publication of false news."Reporters without Bordersranks Nigeria 120 out of 180 countries its 2019 report: "journalists are often threatened, subjected to physical violence or denied access to information by government officials, police and sometimes the public itself."


NGOs have condemned controversial legislation on hate speech in Nigeria. The proposed law would punish hate speech with fines and jail depending on the severity of the crime, in cases where targets of hate speech are killed, the author could face the death penalty.

The bill recieved a strong rebuke from the Economic Community of West African States which ruled the proposed legislation fell foul not only of Universal Declaration of Human Rights but also of the Nigerian Constitution.

The information minister insisted the bill was put forward by members of parliament and said that if his president blocked it he could be accused of dictatorship.

Outright truth.

The haters are trying to dent and bastardize the image and reputation of His Excellence, President Mohammadu Buhari (GCFR) but have been failing despite intense effort.

It's glaring to all on how The President values Human right. But the uneducated, insane and misinformed minorities are quick to jump into conclusions despite having no iota of know-how

I really miss the days when patriotism was measured by one's loyalty to his or her country, not the person in charge of it.

I listened to the interview and marvelled at Lai's stupidity all in a bid to save face. He even baldly denied that Protection from Internet Falsehoods and Manipulations and Other Related Matters Bill 2019 (Social Media Bill) was before the Senate! Meanwhile facts are glaring for all to see. Shameless APC government!
