Meanwhile, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that the federal government will continue with its plan to regulate social media.
Speaking in an interview with TheCable recently, Mohammed said the idea of regulating social media is not to stifle freedom of expression but to curb fake news and disinformation.
The minister noted that fake news and disinformation poses threat to the security of the nation, adding that the government will do everything humanly possible to avert chaos and violence in the country.
