Welcome to the stone age.
I am sorry to say this but with a Northerner as a President what do you expect

That is why any party that has a Northerner as an aspirant for presidency should kiss my vote goodbye!

They are too backward!

They want to take away our only voice? In this country, social media is more valuable to us than our votes coz what we say on social media yields results but our votes never count.

You are living in dreamland if you think social media noise without real action will change anything.

A very tall order that can come to no real good in a country recked with corruption. The most prominent social media are international and based in other countries. Maybe Nigeria will block face book like china does, but in Nigeria's case, they want domain and power over things they do not understand, things they do not know how to make for themselves and things that the backwards culture inherently defeats from being possible to grow from start to finish.
Same reason Nigeria is plagued with overwhelming demand for imports, even among simple things like tomatoes that can grow like weeds in all Nigeria people's compounds. Things fall apart even before they start in Nigeria, and as such, only the same old backwards ways thrive for the glory of squalor for the common man who works the hardest.

You cannot pay salary well enough across the entire nation, cannot provide electricity enough to impress a goat, no municipal potable water supply where it is most needed, cannot reign in corrupt and abusive officials at every level from police to Senators, and cannot keep a livable economy in relative stability, but already trying to graduate to social media to apply control over it.

What would you think of me if i sold service to one person and it was spoiled as soon as i finished the service, and then i went to sell another service to another person with the same result, and then another service and another, on and on and on with same result?
What would you say of me if i told you now i was here to provide social media oversight service to you? You would say social media is ok until the day i put my hand into it.

Please say the same of yourself, Oga at d top, and go home to just be chopping what you have already profited by damage already done, and spare us further damage. Even Baba President get sense to remove his spoiled hand from Nigeria, and he just dey rest in London to spare Nigeria any further dismal change. Very wise and kind of Baba. Be kind and wise and remove hand from this social media.

maclatunji:


You are living in dreamland if you think social media noise without real action will change anything.

I believe the best way to organize effective action is through effective social media where the thoughts and ideas behind the actions can be shared, debated and reformed by all who are concerned, before the action lands on the ground with real impact. The country and world is full of damage done by actions that were not informed well enough and not socialized enough among the people who were involved.
Only so many people can gather on a site to do action before confusion and clutter ensues to cause damage or go slow(too many hands in the kitchen can spoil the food). But social media allows many minds to be on the same page to know the program and plan and to protest or agree to it before any people gather on a site where the potential for chaos and confusion is higher. Informed action is better than just anyhow action, and social media informs across an extensive range of society.
Social media is the perfect staging ground for mass action and thats why politicians fear it, it is more powerful than their traditional way of riding on top luxury car kicking up dust in the masse's faces while assuming everyone understands the ideology behind their political platform.
Social media allows people to stay informed on their own time and location without the inconvenience of getting to a venue just to be inconveniently informed about any course of social action.
Social media is social action in the womb waiting to be born.
Besides, they have put a serious restriction against social media just with the bad electricity and salary supply. People are not using social media as long as they would if they could keep their phone or laptop charged. I make long detailed social media statements with plenty light to charge my social media device in cotonou. Majority of people make short and limited social media information because not enough light to charged their phones and not enough salary to buy data.

Yomzzyblog:
The National Council on Information (NCI) has recommended the “setting up of a Council to regulate the use of social media in Nigeria”.

The recommendation is contained in a communique issued at the end of Extraordinary Meeting of NCI on Hate Speeches, Fake News and National Unity held on Friday in Jos.

In the communique made available to newsmen on Sunday, the Council recommended the use of stringent measures in checking conventional media and their programmes.

The Council, presided over by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, noted that Social media has no address, and as such vetting and editing posting in social media might be difficult.

The Council recommended that Information managers at the state level should open a website to counter report of any misinformation posted by the social media as quickly as the hate speeches, misinformation and fake news are posted.

It recommended immediate killing of whatever postings on social media assumed or presumed to be hate speeches or fake news or misinformation by the information managers in various states.

The Council noted that social media might take over the 2019 elections because Nigerians had come to rely more and believe the social media over the conventional media.

It directed the Federal and State Ministries of Information to use jingles to promote peace and come up with cartoons on the TV and Newspapers telling the dangers of fake news and hate speeches.

“The collaboration must start with National Orientation Agency and the state governments,” the Council recommended.

The Council underscored the need to start talking to those responsible for law and enforcement of justice to address the issues of citizens taking laws into their hands.

The body also emphasised that “the welfare of the people is paramount, people well fed will listen to their government”.


The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a keynote address, expressed displeasure over the hate spewed on radio stations across the country which according to him has become alarming.

The Minister said that ​the careless incitement to violence and the level of insensitivity to the multi-religious, multi-ethnic nature of the country must not be allowed to continue because it is detrimental to the unity and well-being of our country.

The NCI is the highest policy making body for information articulation and delivery in the country.

Delegates to the Council included Heads of Parastatal Agencies in the Federal Ministry of Information and Commissioners for Information in the 36 States.

Here are the facts most nairalanders knows nothing about

1. The National Council on Information (NCI) is not a Federal Government body, but a body that comprises all the 36 states of the Federation, the FCT and the FG

2. What the NCI has suggested, that is the setting up of a Council to regulate the use of social media in Nigeria, is only a RECOMMENDATION,
and nothing else.

3. The Federal Government has NOT accepted the recommendation contained in the NCI Communique, hence there is no cause for alarm or reason to panic. It is WRONG, as some have already done, to conclude that a mere recommendation of a Council is now the policy of the FG.

4. People should always seek to understand issues before commenting on them. Having a phone/laptop and cheap data is no licence for irresponsible posturing and name calling.
