Yes or No....What Buhari-led govt never did, Lai Mohammed revealed

Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari-led government had not tampered with the freedom of speech or rights of individuals, the Minister for Information and Culture,  Lai Mohammed, has said.

He also described Nigeria as the freest country to live in the world stressing that government was only sanitising the media on hate speech and abuse of the freedom of speech.

The Minister stated this when he received the Finland Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Jyrki Pulkkimen and his team, who were on a courtesy visit in his office on Monday.

He said this was not an attempt to clip the media. He said the social media regulation was only to sanitised and not deny the rights of individuals.

Lai Mohammed further said that whatever is tolerated on the streets would be accepted online.

According to him, the government, through the Ministry of Information, had begun the fight against hate speech since 2017.

The Minister pointed out that if people were allowed to do whatever they want on social media in a country like ours with diversity of religion and political interests, there will be chaos.

He said the government will not slack in its quest to bring sanity to social media.
