Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said that the bill has no hidden agenda.
He advised Nigerians to avail themselves of the provisions of the bill and not be misled by those who are trying to politicize it.
He said, “Also, we cannot rule out deliberate mischief by some of those who have been portraying the Bill as a new source of conflict.
“We are therefore using this opportunity to appeal to Nigerians to avail themselves of the provisions of the Bill to avoid being misled by those who have chosen to politicise it.
