"Stop making “silly” comments" - Zahra Buhari tells youths criticizing social media bill

Zahra Buhari-Indimi, daughter of President Muhamadu Buhari, has told Nigerian youths criticizing the social media bill to stop making “silly” comments and heaping blames.

The President's daughter said this while given her support for the controversial bill which has passed second reading in the senate.

Zahra spoke at a recent event organized by her foundation, ZMB Homes, in Abuja, tagged ‘An Afternoon with Zahra.

“We have to see and understand the content of the present social media regulation bill. Whatever it is, you need to understand and know the implication of the bill. That’s what we need to do as young people,” she said in the The Interview

“We need to research more, understand what is going on instead of just making silly comments every now and then and blaming people for no reason. So I am in support of regulations, but fair regulations.”

Zahra also spoke about her experience with cyber-bullies, questioning why many Nigerians bother her with issues pertaining to governance when she holds no office alongside her father.

“2015 was when I knew what bullying was. It started with my photos going viral. I was having a yoga class, sweating. But people were busy sending my pictures up and down,” she said.

“People used it for their gain during campaign. The 2015 elections went well. But, after 100 days, the blow started coming. ‘Zahra, your father did this. Zahra, your father did that.’ Am I in office with him? Do I take any vital decision?

“I kept wondering why people do this to me constantly. I said to myself, ‘Zahra you are a woman. Zahra, you are educated. Zahra, you have a son and a family that loves you.’

“Those bullies do not have families. They are just floating. When they insult you, just let them be. They are trying to cover up some things they are feeling within.”

The social media regulation bill, entitled ‘Protection from Internet Falsehood and Manipulation 2019’, is sponsored by Mohammed Sani Musa (APC, Niger East).

Aisha Buhari, Zahra's mother and wife of President Buhari had also recently voiced her support for the bill.
