However, what I am saying is that the NUJ or the media cannot gag the process of the National Assembly by saying you must drop it. That is not the way of doing things.I said we have suspended the process for more consultations to happen on it. They demanded for a lot of time and I said no problem, you can have all the time you need. During consultations, may people are free to engage and people have been submitting memoranda to the National Assembly from within the industry.The lawmaker also said the idea behind the Bill was not to gag the media but to correct some of the ills currently plaguing the industry and to ensure that there is a code of ethics to guide practitioners.
