FG Will Not Rest Until Social Media Is Regulated In Nigeria — Lai Mohammed

FG Won't Shut Down Social Media, Will Only Regulate It - Lai Mohammed

The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, says the federal government will not rest until social media platforms are regulated.

The minister, in an interview with NAN in Washington, on Wednesday, said the dangers of fake news on social media must be taken seriously. Mohammed also explained that the online media report that he “sneaked out of Nigeria to meet with Twitter executives’’ in the US is fake.

The minister said he came to the US to meet with international media organisations and think-tanks on the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, and efforts made so far in tackling insurgency, banditry, and all forms of criminality.

“When you talk about fake news and its dangers, we need to take it seriously, and I am happy that the entire world is now seeing what we saw more than two years ago. I can assure you that we will not rest until we regulate the social media. Otherwise, nobody will survive it.”
