Simi has shared her reaction to what Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labor and Employment, had to say about the social media bill.
Earlier, Festus wrote, “Those so-called overnight Social Media ‘activists’ who oppose the Social Media Bill should first stop blocking those who irritate them with insults, unblock all those they have blocked and apologize to them. You can’t be intolerant and ask others to be. Practice what you preach.”
Reacting, Simi said since we are in a democratic era, the citizens should not be told how to freely talk about the politicians they should be voting for.
According to her, there are even more important issues that should be addressed.
Her words, “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!”
