NO WAY!!! Freedom Of Speech And Right To Privacy Is Our Prerogative - JMPP Youth Leader

Abuja based popular pageant consultant and project director of Exposure Multi-media consult Flex Baniel Oyefeso who was last week handed the mandate as the National Youth Leader of Justice Must Prevail Party (JMPP) by Dr. Sarah Jubril has reacted over the speculation that the Federal Government will begin to monitor the comments, posts and activities of Nigerians on social Media with intention to sanction, arrest or persecute any individual found culpable of "hate speech". 

Mr Oyefeso made this statement during a media parley with cross section of journalists in Abuja over the weekend.

 In his words ‎" ‎ It has come to our notice that millions of Nigerian youth are under pressure by the speculation that the federal government will from Monday 5th February 2018, begin to monitor every comment, posts and activities of Nigerians on social media, with intention to sanction, arrest and prosecute individuals for what they tag as "Hate Speech". This act is callous  and a clear infringement on the fundamental human right of ordinary Nigerians. 
We shall not take this act likely because it's a move to trample on the constitutional provision of Freedom of speech and expression. and a violation to right of privacy of Nigerians. 
I tag this move as a gimmick of the government to prevent the public from expressing their fundamental right of freedom of expression. Although The government does not posses the man power and capacity to monitor over 100 million Nigeria social media account and numbers. 
It's should be disregarded.
As we are presently in tune with our legal team to instigate a suite against the Federal Government for trying to infringe on the fundamental human right of Nigerians.
We shall not anymore keep quite on a sensitive issue such as this. Justice Must Prevail Party (JMPP) is determined to fight for the right of every Nigerian with all our might. A new dawn for Nigeria has began"
