Draft regulations from Nigeria’s National Information Technology Development Agency will require online platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Tiktok to register and open offices in Nigeria and appoint contact persons with the government in a bid to curb online abuse, including disinformation and misinformation. Reuters quotes the NIDTA as saying that the platforms would be required to provide to users or authorised government agencies relevant information, including for purposing of preserving security and public order. They would also have to file annual reports to the NITDA with the number of registered users in Nigeria, number of complaints received and content taken down due to disinformation and misinformation.
