Just like the Lagos State lawmaker Desmond Elliot frowned at the usage of social media in Nigeria, the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has also supported his view in a separate occasion.
Lai Mohammed during an appearance at the National Assembly lamented about the adverse effects of social media in Nigeria. He alleged that most of the youths address political issues from uninformed perspectives.
He further called for the development of a special technology which could be used to shut down social media at will by the government. The stand of Lai Mohammed on social media has elicited another outrage on Twitter with many calling for his head.
In recent times, there have been constant calls for the regulation of the Nigerian social media space over the strong criticisms of public officials.
