He said usage must be regulated in line with law for both platform owners and users, saying that social media has become very important to people’s existence no doubt, but that there must be regulations guiding its usage.

“The world over, Social Media is playing major roles in crime fighting and Nigeria is not an exception. However, good as the Social Media has become, the level of its abuse and use for misinformation is worrisome.

“No society or responsible government will fold its arms at these excesses. It is being done in other countries. Though it is normal for Nigerians to be suspicious of govt regulations, but users with good intentions has nothing to fear,” Fayose stated.
