#OfficeOfTheCitizen Activated Against Social Media & Hate Speech Bills

Active citizens protested in 20 states on Wednesday, November 27th to demand that the National Assembly should withdraw the Social Media and Hate Speech Bills. The bills are a direct attack on our freedom of speech and expression.

Our existing laws are enough to address all possible crimes in using social media. Why do we need to create new ones? In fact, the Cybercrime Act 2015 which was assented by former President Goodluck Jonathan was so broad it provided room for abuse, and EiE, Paradigm Initiative (PI) and Media Rights Agenda (MRA) are challenging Section 24 of the Act at the Supreme Court. 
In Bayelsa State, Brass 1 State Constituency Supplementary election is also taking place alongside the governorship election.

Kogi West Senatorial re-run election between Dino Melaye of PDP, Smart Adeyemi of APC & 22 others would hold simultaneously with the Kogi governorship election.

How can you #SayNoToSocialMedia and Hate Speech Bills?

If you can’t protest, call your Senator to know his/her stand on the bills.

Write a memo to the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters on the bills. See template.
EiE's Executive, ‘Yemi Adamolekun was violently attacked by DSS officials and her phone was seized and smashed for filming the beating of 2 journalists. The journalists were of the Guardian Newspaper and Galaxy Television.

We remain unflinching in our demand to #FreeSoworeNow!

The Nigeria Sexual Offender
Registry is LIVE!

Nigeria has launched its national sexual offender's register.

Are you a victim of sexual violence? 
Report the incident.
Why is the APC-led Senate committed to silencing dissenting voices under different covers?

Active citizens! If you value your freedom of speech, know your Senators and engage them.

Zamfara State House of Assembly Repeals Law Authorising Pension for Ex-Governors

Zamfara State House of Assembly has taken the bull by the horns to repeal the law that provides payment of pension and other allowances for ex-governors and their deputies; ex-speakers and their deputies.

Active citizens, engage your State House of Assembly members to follow Zamfara State's footsteps and repeal the law that gives bogus allowances to ex-governors as pensions and gratuities.

Rivers, Lagos and Yobe are particularly obscene and we are in court against it with LEDAP.
