Reports Say Federal Government is Monitoring your Calls and Social Media Posts…But Minister Denies
There have been media reports, especially on social media, that a Ministry of Interior Regulation has been created to monitor and record all phone calls and Social Media posts made by Nigerians.
But the Federal Government has described same as false.
In a statement released in Abuja today, Minister
of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed,
described the story as another example of
disinformation that has permeated the media
space, especially the Social Media.
The Minister said the intention of those behind
the false news is to give the impression that the
Federal Government is working to stifle freedom
of speech, which is not the case.
