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.
