The Executive Governor of Rivers State,Nyesom Wike,Slammed plans by the Nigerian government to regulate social media.
According to him, it was nothing but a ploy by government to stop Nigerians from criticizing the failed APC government.
Wike made the call on Friday,during the commissioning of nine (9) reconstructed streets in port Harcourt.
“You have misled the country. You told us lies through social media. The same social media that you used to take over government, the same social media you want to regulate and ban. The same social media you used to tell Nigerians lies of how former President Goodluck Jonathan did not do this, how PDP did not do that.
“Now, you want the same social media to be regulated. You don’t want freedom of speech. Now, you want to gag them. Did anybody gag you when you were using them?” Wike noted.
