Since the reintroduction of the bill sponsored by Mohammed Sani Musa, senator representing Niger east, on November 6, in the senate, Nigerians have continued to kick against its enactment.

However, while speaking, Aisha said,  “On this issue of social media, you cannot just sit in the comfort of your house and tweet that the Vice President has resigned. It is a serious issue. ”

“If China can control over 1.3 billion people on social media, I see no reason why Nigeria cannot attempt controlling only 180 million people.”
