The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has urged the House of Representatives to include regulation of Twitter in the National Broadcasting Commission Act.
The Minister made the call at the public hearing on a bill to amend the NBC Act organised by the House Committee on Information.
The recommendation by the Minister was opposed by others who spoke at the hearing.
The Executive Director of the Institute of Media and Societies, Akin Akingulu lamented the lack of independence for NBC.
He called for more powers to be stripped from the Minister of Information and the independence of NBC should be guaranteed.
