Lai Mohammed Deplores Unregulated Use of Social Media


The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed is advocating the urgent need for every person to be equipped with the ability to critically evaluate and wisely use information at their disposal.

The Minister, who deplored the un-regulated use of social media, made this known in Abuja on Monday while welcoming delegates to the 2022 UNESCO Global Media and Information Literacy Week.

Speaking on the theme of this year’s event “Nurturing Trust: A Media and Information Literacy Imperative,” Mohammed said the world and its leaders must contend with the challenge of identifying what is true and what is false, in view of the use of media and information.

He expressed optimism that contributions at the para-llel sessions of the event will be geared towards finding the linkages to build trust among societies and individuals through the use of social media.
