Chief Gani Adams, the National Co-ordinator of Odua Peoples Congress (OPC), has condemned the Frivolous Petitions Bill pending in the Senate.

The bill seeks to stop the social media from defaming members of the public, including lawmakers.

Adams told the News Agency of Nieria (NAN) on Sunday in Lagos that the passage of the bill would negate the rule of law and some provisions of the Nigerian constitution.


He said that there were extant laws which regulated the practice of journalism in the country and these were adequate.

Adams said that additional laws, when the country is not under a military rule, was uncalled for.

? I was disappointed that the Senate President allowed the bill to go for the second reading. The beauty of democracy is allowing people to express their feelings.

?Social media has provided job opportunities for to a lot of our youths and has discouraged youths from social vices by engaging them in profitable actives.?
