The proposed plans by the federal government to regulate the use of social media is laughable and will fail in Nigeria’, this is according to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye.
The highly revered man of God made this known on Sunday, November 2, through the Assistant General Overseer (Admin. & Personnel) and member of the governing council, Pastor Johnson Odesola.
He advised that instead of regulating social media, the Federal Government should ensure that news shared, are genuine. Adding that Nigeria is not China where the system is being embraced.
Adeboye said “The best the government can do is to ensure that the news being carried through the social media is genuine but to want to replicate what is happening in China here in Nigeria is laughable and would not be possible here,”
