Proposed Social Media Regulation Is An Attempt To Gauge The Common Man – Adeboye

Proposed social media regulation by the Federal government have received a lot of opposition from the general public.

Taking his stand on the proposal, the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye has kicked against proposal, describing it as laughable, insensitive and an attempt to gauge the common man.

The clergyman who spoke on Sunday at the RCCG headquarters November thanksgiving service with the theme “Better days ahead”, said the attempts to regulate the social media as done in China won’t work in Nigeria because the variables are so different.

Adeboye said:

The best the government can do is to ensure that the news being carried through the social media is genuine but to want to replicate what is happening in China here in Nigeria is laughable and would not be possible here.

Chinese leaders do not run personal accounts outside their shores unlike leaders in other parts of the world, the world most populous nation also run a working social, welfare and educational with adequate plans for citizens.

Everything applicable to the Chinese is applicable to every citizen unlike in Nigeria.

He also carpeted the Federal Government for poor handling of the #ENDSARS protests, stating the shooting at Lekki paved the way for hoodlums to hijack the protests.

Adeboye also reiterated the call for restructuring of Nigeria, stating he is not a party to the breaking of the nation.

According to him:

I am not in support of the opinion that the country should divide because in our togetherness we are strong.

All we need to do is having an agreement to share everything equally and be principled. We are stronger together but we should restructure.
