Nigeria Plans To Regulate The Use Of Social Media
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 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. “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” he said.
