A Former Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Shehu Sani, has stated that the All Progressives Congress should not start talking about regulation of social media simply because the party is in power and the youths are using it against the APC.

Senator Shehu Sani made this statement during an interview with a journalist on Channels Television. During the interview, Senator Shehu Sani said, "when PDP was in power, we used social media to demonize them and evict them out of power. The APC came to power and the same weapon are being used by young people against the APC. Now, they (APC) are saying that we need to regulate social media."

"You do not do things because you are in power. I accept the fact that there are some social media contents that undermines democracy and threaten the stability and unity of this country, but the point is that once we have a system where whatever information that comes from someone's input can be traced to that person, you naturally have regulations because some people share fake information, some create fake information, and some share inciting statements."
