Federal Government 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.

The DG of the privatisation agency, Mr. Benjamin Dikki, said this at a retreat for non-management staff of the organization.

Dikki frowned on the unregulated posting of what he called offensive materials on the various social networking sites. He 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.
