Nigerian singer Simi took a dig at the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo following his support for the hate speech bill.
 
The Minister had earlier told Nigerians who are against the bill to unblock those that irritate them on social media. According to Keyamo, those against the bill should not be intolerant on social media and ask others not to. 
 
Quote:He wrote "Those so-called overnight Social Media ‘activists’ who oppose the Social Media Bill should first stop blocking those who irritate them with insults, unblock all those they have blocked and apologise to them. You can’t be intolerant and ask others to be. Practice what you preach."
 
However reacting to the tweet, Simi stated that democracy does not permit a law that makes people sensitive when they talk about the people they voted for. The singer who wondered the number of false posts that triggered proposition of the bill, added that there are more pressing issues in the country.
 
Quote:Simi tweeted “In a democracy sir, it should not be the law for people to be ‘sensitive’ when they talk about the people they voted for.
“How many false posts about the government actually circulate that warrants a bill like this? We have way more pressing issues in Nigeria and even you know it!"
