A former Nigerian senator, Shehu Sani has sent a message to the National Assembly.
According to the ex-lawmaker, if the controversial Nigerian Press council bill is amended and passed, it will give birth to a monster.
Speaking on Friday via his social media page, he wrote:
If the Senate and the House of reps agree to amend the Nigerian Press Council Bill that makes it impossible for the media to hold the Government to account.”
“They will be building a tyrannical monster that will consume this democracy and the institution they represent.”
“Of all the problems of this country,the one receiving the most attention is how to silence voices of dissent.”
