Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN) has been taken to the cleaners by popular musician, Simi over his remarks on the Social Media Bill.
Keyamo had on his Twitter page mocked those opposing the social media bill.
He wrote: “The real agitation should be for Parliament, in line with S.36(12) of the 1999 Constitution, to clearly define the TYPES of false and insensitive posts that would attract penal consequences, so that govt doesn’t abuse it. But to leave everyone to just post ANYTHING is unacceptable.”
Be that as it may, Simi replied him thus; “In a democracy sir, it should not be the law for people to be ‘sensitive’ when they talk about the people they voted for.”
“How many false posts about the government actually circulate that warrants a bill like this? We have way more pressing issues in Nigeria and even you know it!”
