The minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Tuesday, October 27 said that the nation is sitting on a keg of gun powder regarding the issue of fake news, hence the need for the federal government to immediately begin to regulate the social media space.

The minister stated this while responding to questions from federal lawmakers when he appeared before the House of Representatives committee on information, national orientation, ethics and values.Alhaji Lai Mohammed has continued his advocacy for social media regulation. Alhaji Mohammed made reference to the recent #ENDSARS protest, saying that it was fought on social media.

His words:

“They mobilised using social media. The war today revolves around two things. Smart phones and data and these young men don’t even watch television or listen to the radio or read newspapers. “We are sitting on a time bomb on this issue of fake news. Unfortunately, we have no national policy on social media and we need one. The minister’s latest comments is expected to spark reactions across the country as young Nigerians have been warning against government’s alleged plans to gag them on social media.

The authorities have promised that they don’t intend to completely shut down social media in the country, but the distrust between government and the led in Nigeria has been that of mutual suspicion.
