NBC Sends Bill Seeking To Regulate Social Media To National Assembly
AttNews reports that the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) says it has sent a bill for the regulation of social media to the national assembly.

Expressing his dissatisfaction that the current law does not give NBC the right to regulate social media, Mr Ilelah described the ills of social media as a “monster.”
“We want to tell you that a bill for an act to repeal and amend the NBC act, CAP L11 laws of the federation of Nigeria 2004, to accommodate the transition from analogue to digital broadcasting service, also to promote quality audio and video, efficient management of the spectrum, Nigeria Broadcast Institute, social media regulation has been read for the first time on the floor of the national assembly,” the DG said.
