The government of President Muhammadu Buhari has been told that the idea to regulate social media is a bad one.
The view was expressed by popular Nigerian comedian and video producer, Mark Angel.
He said that the move by the Federal Government to regulate the social media will lead to job loss.
According to the producer best known for the Mark Angel Comedy Series on various social media platforms, a lot of Nigerian youths earn their living by creating content on social media.
The producer of popular comedienne, Emanuella Samuel, spoke on Monday in a PUNCH Facebook Live Interview.
Mark Angel advised government officials and those pushing for the restriction of the social media to, instead, face other “major problems” in the country and leave the social media.
He said, “Imagine you want to regulate social media when some of us are self-employed through social media. There are no jobs, yet you want to restrict social media. I don’t even want to talk about that thing. Anybody that even tries it, it is God that will knock on his door and answer him.”
