Pastor Tunde Bakare backs social media censorship | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f



The General Overseer of the Citadel Global Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has called for the censorship of the social media in Nigeria.


Bakare said the danger of social media was enormous if not censored.


The clergyman said laws should be enacted to guide the conduct of social media in the country.


Addressing journalists yesterday in Lagos State, Bakare noted that there must be freedom with boundaries in Nigeria.


He said: “There is no free freedom anywhere in the world; there must be freedom with boundary.


“I am not saying curtail them or we can’t use social media in Nigeria. But there is no nation where there are no balances.


“For instance, look at the picture of a drama that was shot somewhere else but was used to say soldiers have killed protesters. Those things can grieve and create troubles.”


He, however, urged the government to listen to Nigerians and make laws “that will be beneficial” to all citizens.


“But we cannot be draconian; we are not going back to Decree 4,” he said.


Bakare had declared that he would become Nigeria’s president.

  1. This suggests that the existing regulations including that governing cyber crimes were written by idiots? Or the regulations are stupid. It also cast Nigeria in bad light as ibnatio a space where lawlessness holds sway during this Government.
