He went on Twitter to lament about the current state of things. He tweeted:
“This world is exhausting. In America, it’s racism – white cops killing unarmed black people. In Nigeria, where we share the same skin colour, it’s tribalism & genocide. Every other week there’s another story of mass murder; Kaduna today, Jos tomorrow. So much hatred. I am tired. So much darkness. So much violence and hatred. We’ve heard of people being killed so much, we’ve become numb to it. Different day, different victims, same story, same hashtags…” Nigerian celebrity news

After a long wait, domestic workers are finally allowed to return to work and generate an income. Patel also mentioned that most other industries would make a return under Level 3. Apart from restaurants, entertainment, and recreation facilities, most other industries will return to the grind.
4. Trump preparing order targeting social media protections
US President Donald Trump is expected to order a review of a law that has long protected Twitter, Facebook, and Alphabet’s Google from being responsible for the material posted by their users, according to a draft executive order and a source familiar with the situation.
News of the order comes after Trump threatened to shut down websites he accused of stifling conservative voices following a dispute with Twitter after the company decided to tag Trump’s tweets about unsubstantiated claims of fraud in mail-in voting with a warning prompting readers to fact-check the posts.
The president cannot unilaterally regulate or close the companies, which would require action by the US Congress or the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). On Wednesday, officials said Trump will sign an executive order on social media companies on Thursday. Prince Harry and Meghan
President Trump has signed an executive order today, Thursday, seeking to limit the broad legal protection that federal law currently provides to social-media and other online platforms, a move that is expected to draw immediate court challenges which he himself has acknowledged.
Trump’s order would pave the way for U.S. agencies to revisit and potentially undo long-standing legal protections known as Section 230, which spares tech giants from being held liable for the content they allow online and their own moderation decisions. The directive specifically could open the door for the Federal Communications Commission to rethink the scope of the law, the people familiar with the document said. A change could have dramatic free-speech implications and wide-ranging consequences for a broad swath of companies reliant on doing business on the Internet.
