FG budgets N104m to combat fake news, hate speech, others
The Federal Government as part of its advocacy against fake news, hate speech, and banditry has allocated the sum of N104,532,705 to its cause.
This was contained in the 2022 appropriation budget obtained on the website of the budget office of Nigeria.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed had over time said that the country has constantly been in the war against perpetrators of fake news and hate speech.
The minister in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria had also stated that Nigeria had graduated from ordinary fake news to “deep” fake news which according to him was being used to wage war against the government and its officials.
He had also said that at the beginning, purveyors of deep fake news were largely unknown online publications, adding that it was, however, unfortunate that otherwise reputable publications and some mainstream media had joined the bandwagon while adding that citizens found guilty would be sanctioned.
