Senate President “David Mark” Wants To Regulate Social Media- Facebook, Twitter.
It’s always a surprise when I hear somethings in this country(Nigeria), I don’t know if they want to send us back in time in the dark ages of dictatorship where resources to the internet and online social media will be regulated.
The architect of this sad plot is no other than Senate President David Mark, the man who was once quoted as saying that telephone is not meant for everybody.
While patriotic leaders in progressive countries of the world are utilizing the Social Media to sell their ideas to citizens and seeking their support, we also gathered that Senator David Mark is set to fight the freedom of the social media in Nigeria for some selfish reasons.
In fact, a source told us that the senate president is so obsessed with the idea of regulating the Social Media that he had to openly voice out his hatred for it during a retreat in Abia State on Thursday. In his speech, David Mark described the Social Media as “dangerous” and a “threat to good governance”.
The question is who’s the real threat to good governance:
Is it the Internet, Social Media or Corrupt Nigerian Politicians?
