Lai Mohammed Calls for Regulation of Social Media

The minister stated this while responding to questions when he appeared before the House of Representatives Committee on Information, National Orientation, Ethics and Values to defend the 2021 budget proposal.

He said the biggest challenge facing the country is the issue of fake news and misinformation, warning that the next war that will be fought in the country and across the globe may be fought through social media.

Mohammed further made reference to the recent #ENDSARS protest, saying that it was fought on social media.
