Gov Hope Uzodinma Declares Support For Social Media Regulation



Governor Hope Uzodinma

Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has said he strongly support the regulation of social media.

Governor Uzodinma who played host to Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) on Thursday, said social media is “being used to cause trouble in the country”.

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

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

Adamu on his part concurred with the Governor’s position, stating that social media was the greatest weapon used to escalate the #EndSARS protest across the country.

“I can tell you that our men acted professionally during the protest, they had their guns, they were being killed, yet they respected human dignity,” said Adamu.

“I came specifically to visit vandalised property and to see the level of damage done to police facilities in Imo.”

The IGP further urged Nigerians not to allow the country to pass through the experience it had during the ENDSARS protest in future.
