Fake News: Information Minister says such practice will fuel third world war.
Written by News Room on October 26, 2021
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has warned against what he believes to be the growing trend of fake news, saying it can result in the next World War.
Lai Mohammed said this when he appeared before the House of Representatives Committee on Information, National Orientation, Ethics and Values to defend his ministry’s 2022 budget on Monday.
He, therefore, called for collaboration among stakeholders to tackle the menace.
This is not the first time the minister will be making such assertions, as he has always been at the forefront of conversations around fake news.
In February, the minister had said the use of social media in amplifying fake news had become a form of cancer.
