The Northern Governors’ Forum (NGF) has called for a major control of social media in Nigeria.

The governors, at a meeting in Kaduna on Monday, November 2, 2020, stated that the effect of uncontrolled social media was devastating.

NGF chairman and Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, said the social media was used to spread fake news during the recent nationwide demonstrations against police brutality, and must be censored by the government.

“The meeting took note of the devastating effect of the uncontrolled social media in spreading fake news, therefore calls for major control mechanisms and censorship of the social media practiced in Nigeria,” he said.
