The Northern Governor’s Forum and the National Assembly has been threatened to be sued by the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project if any social media bill is passed and signed by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

On Tuesday, SERAP said this in a tweet while reacting to a proposal by the northern governors for more social media regulations in the wake of the #EndSARS protests.

The tweet read, “We’ll sue the Northern Governors’ Forum and the National Assembly if any social media bill is passed and signed by President Buhari. Nigerians have a right to freedom of expression online. We won’t accept any illegal attempts to interfere with that right #NoToSocialMediaBill.”
