Join Social Media, Lai Mohammed Tells Information Managers
Join Social Media
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, flanked by Hon. Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Benue State, Chief Odeh Ageh, said information managers should communicate facts to drown negative information and falsehoods on social media.
“They are also to be proactive since if they go to sleep those who are working on social media to discredit government are awake,” he said.
He also said the best way for information managers to whittle the negative information about government on social media is for the managers themselves to join social media.
Chief Mohammed stated all this at the ongoing 46th session of the National Council on Information (NCI) in Asaba, Delta State.
The theme for this year’s meeting is “Leveraging on Information and Digital Technology to Sustain the Change Agenda of Government.”
