Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu while on an interview on Channels Television’s ‘ Sunrise Daily Programme’ has argued in support of the social media regulation by the federal government.
The governor noted that such regulation measures are being effected in countries like Russia and China.
However when asked if divisive statements made by political actors during elections should also been regulated, Governor Akeredolu who described such statements as “political gunshots” maintained that they are not capable of inciting violence.
He insisted that politicians know themselves and don’t take themselves seriously. He also alleged that people have been using clips from movies to propagate fake news in the country even in cases where deaths are not recorded.
