YOUR VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD
Mar 2, 2020 —
Because your voice is important and freedom of speech is paramount in any democratic environment, I am working with EnoughisEnough Nigeria (EiENigeria) and Spaces for Change to push this petition forward.
The public hearing for this bill will be coming up on the 9th of March 2020, and this petition form part of the submissions at the Public hearing.
This is because our criticisms matter and the government trying to criminalise this under the guise of curbing the spread of fake news is highly unacceptable.
They are accountable to us, and we demand to ensure that accountability in whatever form be it through social media, protests or whatever democratic means we desire.
Keep fighting for people power!
