Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, disclosed this in Cairo at a meeting with his Egyptian counterpart, Dr Amir Talaat.
Mohammed disclosed that Nigeria was amending its National Broadcasting Act and Broadcasting Code to ensure that all online platforms operating in the country comply with stipulated conditions as done with Twitter.
“Whatever applies to Twitter will apply to all other social media platforms, be it WhatsApp, Facebook or any other,” the minister said.
