Governor Makinde Refuses to support Social Media Regulation, says' We don't need it
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has distanced him self from supporting social Media Regulation.
Recall that South-West leaders supported the regulation of social media.
Makinde said, since there’s already an extensive Cybercrime Act, there’s no need for any other bills to regulate social media.
Governor Makinde added that should anyone sponsor a bill to regulate social media, he should be categorically counted out.
He wrote: “I also clarified the misrepresentation of the position of the Southwest leaders on the so-called social media bill. Contrary to media reports, our position remains that since we already have an extensive Cybercrime Act, 2015 we don’t need any other bills to regulate social media.”
