The Federal Government is set to sanitise the social media space to curtail fake news and hate speech.
This was disclosed on Tuesday by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, at a press conference in Abuja.
According to Lai Mohammed, the Federal Government will implement reforms in the broadcast industry and sanction any defaulting broadcast media.
“Since we launched our reform of the broadcast industry, many Nigerians have reached out to us, demanding that we also look into how to sanitise the Social Media space. I can assure you that we are also working on how to inject sanity into the Social Media space which, today, is totally out of control,” he said.
