Media Should Be Used To Promote Good Governance – Muhammed Onogwu
The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, Mr. Muhammed Onogwu has urged social media users to ensure that the Social Media space was being used to promote good governance.
Mr Onogwu said this while delivering an address after he was conferred with an Award of Kogi Social Media Man of Honour.
He noted that Social Media has become a veritable and effective platform for the citizens to make demands on good governance, express concerns and demand justice.
He added that with over three billion social media users cutting across the globe, young persons who formed the larger percentage have relentlessly found the platform as a safe bay to speak their minds and express their opinions for or against an individual, organisation or government.
Mr. Onogwu submitted that the abuse of the Social Media has a more damaging impact on governance as well as other very crucial aspect of the society and human endeavours noting that a larger part of the dangers relating to the social Media are majorly human flaws and inputs.
He urged residents of the state to use Social Media to promote the state developments to the world.
