#NoToSocialMediaBill – EiE, PINigeria and MRA Nigeria Challenge The Bill in Court
Last week, a Federal High Court in Lagos directed that the National Assembly be “put on notice” before the court would consider an application seeking to restrain both the Senate and House of Representatives from passing the Frivolous Petitions (Prohibition, Etc) Bill, otherwise known as the Anti-Social Media Bill.
Justice Mojisola Olatoregun-Ishola gave the directive while declining to grant a motion ex parte brought by 3 NGOs – Enough is Enough Nigeria (EIE), Media Rights Agenda (MRA) and Paradigm Initiative Nigeria (PIN), in a suit challenging the constitutionality of the proposed Law.
