Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State has decried the use of social media to threaten Nigeria’s democracy.

The Governor at a dinner to commemorate Nigeria’s Democracy Day on Saturday at the Government House, Jos, said some Nigerians were using the social media to propagate their personal interests at the detriment of upholding the democratic values of Nigeria.

“It is expedient for me to draw attention to the worrying situation where a section of the conventional media and to a large extend the social media are becoming a threat to Nigeria’s democracy.

“People who want to pursue their personal interests are using some sections of the media irresponsibly

“They go about propagating falsehood, fake news, incitement and refusing to abide by professional code of ethics.

“Sometimes, when you follow what some people put in the social media, you wonder whether they believe in Nigeria,” Lalong said.

The Governor admonished Nigerians to be responsible, careful and guard the country’s democracy jealously.

He noted that the country would not collapse or disintegrate contrary to the negative narratives infiltrating the polity.

The governor urged Nigerians not to dwell on our ethnic, religious, political and ideological differences but embrace our diversity which is Nigeria’s greatest strength.

“When we stand together and promote justice, equity, fairness and tolerance to one another, there will be no limit to the greatness of Plateau State and Nigeria as a whole,” Lalong added.
