Deji Adeyanju, popular rights activist says the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai is too ignorant to hold such an office as he slammed Mohammed for insisting on government’s regulation of social media space.
Mohammed had vowed not to rest until the social media space in Nigeria is regulated while reacting to a reports that he sneaked out to the United States, US, to meet with the management of Twitter over the ban in Nigeria.
Mohammed, who described the report as fake said his official visit to the U.S. had nothing to do with Twitter saying he went to meet with international media organisations and think tanks on the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and efforts made so far in tackling insurgency, banditry and all forms of criminality.
Reacting, Adeyanju tweeted: “Lai Mohd is too ignorant to be the minister of Information. His insistence on regulating Social Media only confirms this.
“You can’t regulate what you have no control over. We have proved that with our continuous use of Twitter even after their so called ban.”
