Gradually, the Nigeria government is finding ways and means to prevent people from expressing their views and concerns on social media.

On Monday November 2, the Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF) agreed and called for the regulation of social media.

The Governors made the call in a statement issued in Kaduna at the end of their meeting with traditional rulers and other political office holders from the region.

The Governors who said the effect of uncontrolled social media is devastating, added that it has to be regulated in order to halt the dangers of spreading fake news.

They also condemned the “subversive” actions of some #EndSARS protesters, saying some people took advantage of peaceful protest to push their “separative agenda”.
