Governor Uzodinma says he is in support of social media regulation in Nigeria

Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state has openly backed the proposed move to regulate social media in Nigeria.

Uzodinma made his position known on Thursday, November 5, when the inspector-general of police, Mohammed Adamu, paid him a visit in Owerri, the capital of Imo, The Cable reported.

He raised concerns over social media, arguing that social media is being used to cause trouble in the country.

He said:

“I am strongly advocating that social media should be regulated in Nigeria”.

“Opposition party incited hoodlums to cause trouble in Imo, because the real protesters went off the street after my address and assurances to them.”

On his part, the police boss, Adamu said the escalation of the EndSARS protest across Nigeria was caused by social media.

According to him, social media was the greatest weapon used to inflame the protest.

He said the police acted professionally during the protest by showing respect for human dignity.
