The Niger State Governor, Mohammed Bago, has called on the Federal Government to censor the contents of the social media platforms in Nigeria saying that they are being abused.

Bago said this will checkmate the spread of fake news in the country while promoting objective reportage by practitioners of conventional journalism.

He made this known on Thursday during his decoration as the Grand Patron of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Niger State Council.

The governor became the latest politician to call for regulated social media after President Bola Tinubu’s Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, called for social media regulation.

The NUJ National President, Chris Isiguzo, who also presented the governor with a certificate, said the honour was in recognition of his exemplary leadership qualities.
