Although, he acknowledged the roles of the social media in the development of the country’s growing democracy, but he insisted that the Senate would not fold its hand to allowed it abused by some elements.

While flaying the criticisms that have greeted the proposed social media censorship bill, Saraki insisted that senators cannot be blackmailed to drop the bill.

Saraki said: “People must be held responsible for their action. I believe what has been raised is important,” even as agreed that there is existence of freedom of speech in the constitution.
