Nigerian rapper M.I Abaga have taken to his social media to pen a reply to Festus Keyamo on his tweet concerning the hate speech bill.
He pointed out the difference between blocking people on twitter and stopping people from speaking.
According to Festus Keyamo, the social media activists who kick against the bill are the same ones who block social media users with opposing views.
“Those so-called overnight Social Media ‘activists’ who oppose the Social Media Bill should first stop blocking those who irritate them with insults, unblock all those they have blocked and apologize to them. You can’t be intolerant and ask others to be. Practice what you preach”.
Below is M.I Abaga’s reply to him;
I’m sure you can see the difference esteemed sir. Blocking people (which is so much fun by the way) doesn’t infringe on the other persons right to say what they want to say.. I don’t have to listen to you isn’t the same as I won’t allow you speak .
