NIGERIA’S CHIEF JUSTICE BACKS FRIVOLOUS PETITIONS BILL

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed, has given a crucial support to the frivolous petitions bill, popularly known as anti-social media bill, saying it is designed to protect all Nigerians from false allegations. Nigeria’s chief judge said with the flood of frivolous petitions in all tiers of government, the freedom of speech must be within the ambit of law. Justice Mohammed who stated his position on the controversial bill at a public hearing organised by the senate on it in Abuja, said the rights to freedom in Nigeria has been ignored while many advanced democracies had introduced laws on freedom of information. The proposed bill, according to him, would ensure that information disseminated by the social media to the public is from legitimate source, geniune and known sources of identification
