Base on the regulation of the social media going on in Nigeria, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye, has hereby go against the federal government’s proposed social media regulation.
This was stated on Sunday at the RCCG headquarters November thanksgiving service with the theme “Better days ahead”.
He added that, the attempt to regulate the social media as it was done in China won’t work here in Nigeria, due to the variables are so different.
He advised the government instead to focus on making sure the news shared on social media is genuine.
But to replicate what is happening in China is laughable in Nigeria and would not be possible here, best thing is to make sure genuine news are shared on social media, Adeboye said.
This was disclosed by Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed last week as he said the government have to regulate social media in Nigeria for fake news to stop.
