The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has begged lawmakers to regulate Twitter and other Online broadcasters.
 
The Minister said this during the public hearing on a bill to amend the NBC Act organised by the House Committee on Information.


This comes following the public spat between the FG and Twitter.

“I will want to add, that specifically, internet broadcasting and all online media should be included in this because we have responsibility to monitor content— including Twitter,” he said.
 
The recommendation by the Minister was opposed by others who spoke at the hearing.
 
The Executive Director of the Institute of Media and Societies, Akin Akingulu lamented the lack of independence for NBC.
 
He called for more powers to be stripped from the Minister of Information and the independence of NBC should be guaranteed.
 
Akingulu also called for the confirmation of the Director-General of the NBC by the National Assembly.
 
He noted that the inclusion of Twitter and others as “categories of broadcasting services licences will be injurious to the civics space, freedom of expression and media freedom in Nigeria.”
