Social Media Censorship in Nigeria?

Hold on, China. It looks like Nigeria is vying for your free-speech-free society trophy. Senate president David Mark got his feelings hurt and wants to crack down on what people say on the internet because sometimes people demean their leaders.

Ah, democracy is such an inconvenience.

Here’s the money quote:

We need to change our attitude on how we report things about our country and we should emulate the foreign reporters who never report negative things about their countries.

Someone’s not reading many foreign newspapers.
