In Nigeria, the Federal Government has established new restrictions for the functioning of Internet platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
According to regulations issued by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), social platforms and other internet-based applications must be properly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and must appoint a representative from within who will communicate with Nigerian authorities.

The new guidelines, according to sources, were contained in a statement signed and delivered by NITDA spokesman Hadiza Umar on Monday.
The new standards, according to the agency, were created to better clarify basic rules for interaction in the digital ecosystem.
NITDA also asks that the platforms comply with all regulatory requirements and any tax duties imposed by Nigerian law on their operations.
President Muhammadu Buhari, according to reports, has directed the agency to develop a code of practice for Interactive Computer Service Platforms/Internet Intermediaries (online platforms) in collaboration with relevant regulatory agencies and stakeholders, in accordance with Section 6 of the NITDA Act 2007, which allows it to standardize, coordinate, and develop regulatory frameworks for information technology (IT) practices in Nigeria.

In this context, the NITDA has made the document available to the public for review and comment. “Internet platforms must provide a thorough compliance framework to avoid the dissemination of forbidden content and unethical behavior on their platform,” according to the NITDA.
The new rules were created in collaboration with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), as well as input from Interactive Computer Service Platforms like Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram, Google, and Tik Tok, among others, according to the agency.Join our Telegram Channel for Updates!!!
