‘I was a victim of cyber-bullying in 2015’ – Buhari’s daughter backs social media
Zahra Indimi, daughter to President Muhamadu Buhari, has given her support for the controversial social media bill — as long as it is carried out in a “fair” manner.
Zahra spoke at the first edition of ‘An Afternoon with Zahra’, an event recently organized in Abuja by the ZMB Homes, her foundation, tagged #ConversationWithZahra.
According to The Interview, she also called on the youth to wait and understand the content of the bill before making “silly” comments and heaping blames.
“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.
“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.
But she forgot that those bullying took her to limelight and celebrity.
