Singer Simi has tackled the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo over hi stance on the social media bill.
Before engaging Keyamo on social media, the minister had earlier stated that those who are against the social media bill to unblock those that irritate them on social media, adding that the people should not be intolerant on social media and ask others not to.
According to him,
“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 apologise to them. You can’t be intolerant and ask others to be. Practice what you preach.”
While reacting to his post, Simi mentioned that democracy does not permit a law that makes people sensitive when they talk about the people they voted for.
The singer further said that there are more pressing issues in the country.
“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!”
