Nigeria Has More Pressing Concerns Than The “Hate Speech Bill”- Shina Peller

Owner of a Lagos club Quilox, Shina Peller, who represents Iseyin/ Itesiwaju/ Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency at the lower chamber of the NASS, gives his thoughts on the controversial ‘Hate Speech’ bill.

According to him, ‘Nigeria is faced with a lot of problems that are more critical than Hate Speech’

In a recent interview with NASS NEWS, Shina Peller said, ‘the constitution provides for freedom of speech and expression for the citizenry, so whatsoever bill that will truncate is dead on arrival.

There are existing laws that provides punishment for those set of person who propagate fake news/Hate speech – The only regulation the social media in Nigeria needs is identity verification’.
