Popular Nigerian comedian and video producer, Mark Angel, says the move by the Federal Government to regulate the social media will lead to job loss.

According to the producer best known for the Mark Angel Comedy Series on various social media platforms, a lot of Nigerian youths earn their living by creating content on social media.

 

 

Mark Angel advised government officials and those pushing for the restriction of the social media to, instead, face other “major problems” in the country and leave the social media.

 

 

He said, “Imagine you want to regulate social media when some of us are self-employed through social media. There are no jobs, yet you want to restrict social media. I don’t even want to talk about that thing. Anybody that even tries it, it is God that will knock on his door and answer him.”

 

 

The regulation of the social media by the government, which has been supported by most governors, has, however, been condemned by civil society organisations who described it as a violation of the right to free speech.
