Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar lll has advised the Federal Government to regulate the use of social media in the country.

The monarch, however, stated that he is against placing a total ban on social media.


He asked the government to take a cue from countries that have successfully regulated it.


He spoke on Wednesday at the special summit on security in Abuja.


“As lawmakers, what do you do about social media? I’m not saying ban social media but regulate it,” he said.


“We’ve seen it happen all over the world. Why can’t Nigeria borrow from that? It’s important for us and I hope this seminar will discuss some of these issues and when you’re ready with your decision, call some of us back, like the national council of traditional rulers. We will sit together once more.”
