Senate president, Bukola Saraki has said that Senate will not pass the controversial social media bill. Saraki told a social media conference in Lagos that parliament recognizes the role of social media in Nigeria’s development.
The proposed bill, presented to the senate last December, was “dead on arrival,” Mr Saraki added.
The bill proposes up to seven years in jail or a $25,000 (£16,000) fine for anyone found to be sending “abusive messages”.
