Attempts to regulate social media won’t work in Nigeria – Adeboye
The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye, has expressed his stand about federal government’s proposed social media regulation.
Adeboye on Sunday kicked against the new development while advising on the possible things to do about it.
This was made known through the Assistant General Overseer (Admin. and Personnel) Pastor J. F. Odesola, a member of the church Governing council during November thanksgiving service with the theme “Better days ahead”.
He said the attempts to regulate the social media as is the case in China won’t work in Nigeria, because the variables are so different.
He however advised that the government should focus on ensuring the credibility of news shared on social media.
He 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.”
