The Speaker while reacting to the public outcry both bills generated after the public hearing, said that what the house intends to do is to regulate the media.

Gbajabiamila further noted that even though he is strongly against any bill that seeks to gag the media, there is nowhere in the world that freedom of speech is absolute.
