The Senate has thrown out the Frivolous petition bill 2015 (SB. 143), otherwise known as anti- social media bill, Vanguard reports.

The bill sponsored by Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah (APC, Kebbi South) set the Senate against the public when it passed through second reading late last year. The Senators took the decision following the report of the committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters on the bill. Delivering the report, Chairman of the Committee, Senator David Umaru (APC, Niger East) said the bill was opposed by almost all stakeholders during the Public Hearing on it.

He therefore said, his committee recommended its withdrawal. Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the plenary, also backed the withdrawal.
