Lai Mohammed: No Going Back On Social Media Regulation by agwom(m): 6:29am On Nov 15
The Federal Government says criticisms will not stop it from going ahead with its planned efforts to sanitise the social media space. The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, stated this on Thursday when he met with the Guild of Corporate Online Publishers in Abuja.

“We are not alone in doing this. Countries around the world are as concerned as we are, and they are doing something about the social media. The list is long: Germany, UK, Singapore, China, South Korea, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Zambia, etc,” the minister said. He said the campaign against fake news and hate speech had assumed a heightened dimension.

“We have been monitoring the debate. Some analysts and commentators have supported our plan; while others have opposed it. An interesting part of the debate has been that even those who oppose the regulation have acknowledged the dangers inherent in the irresponsible use of the social media, especially by anarchists and non-patriots. We thank everyone who has spoken out, and we hope the debate will continue”, he said. He said the government had not announced how it planned to go about the regulation because it would not be a unilateral process.

“It will involve all stakeholders coming together to chart the path forward. Let me announce here that we have just kick-started the process. We have dispatched letters inviting representatives of the media, civil society, technology and security experts, online publishers, bloggers, relevant agencies of government, etc, for this purpose,” he said. He said the government was exploring many options open to it in regulating the social media, stressing that apart from enacting new laws, we can also leverage on technology, working with the big techies like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Istagram to check the spread of fake news and hate speech.

It's not your fault. We are too docile in this country, If not, an unrepentant liar like Lai has no business being a minister in the first place.

I just laugh u guys cos u'll obviously can't sense the game they trying to play. I see Buhari contesting for a third term and they don't want any opposition or hate comments at all and we'all know Buhari is now in control of both the legislative and the judiciary which he has always wanted to help him aid and abet his evil agendas and behold it's about to start taking effect. Be ready Nigerians, just be ready.. We've not seen the worst from that Dictator.

In as much as im not in support of The Federal Government, the problem is a large number of senseless youths on Social Media who cannot define the common boundary between senseless talks and constrictive criticism.

Some comments sucks. Because some of the us were giving nothing to say either by their actual environment in life, the school system or our parents. Which is why today we have a Government who feel they can do anything and get away with it

APC use social media to fight PDP, now they want to close it down. I know Sowore is one of thier major target cos they know that coming back of Sowore will finish them. Let see how it goes..

Mrsserene:
The only people pained by this new rule are bitter people or people that feed from spreading false news and hate. I have been wondering why such people are going unpunished in this country. Dear FG, start with Nairaland hate vendors!

Look that this hungry and smiling boy. No money, no Job. Yet u dey support Buhari up-and-down

Whichever one, you guys can do as you wish. One thing is that APC members will still be the ones to be caught in the trap. Remember the pre-election shoot at sight order for ballot box snatchers? The APC members later turn out to be victims and one of them nearly lost his life in Lagos.
