The Nigerian minister for Youths and Sports Mr. Sunday Dare has spoken out about what seems to have transpired during the #EndSars Protest which rocked the entire country about fortnight ago.
During that highly tensed period, there was several rumours and calls for the central federal government to regulate or even outrighly shutdown the entire social media space as many pundits and opinion leaders peceived that could help strifle the youths the voice and medium for mass mobilization of members for the protest.
However the Honourable minister has thrown a little light about what went down. He said, “The fact that our youths used it (Social media) to mobilise is commendable. But the talk about the regulation of the social media has been around for a while. We’ve seen other countries taking practical steps in that direction, this country has not done that. Even during the #EndSARS protests, the country had an option (but) the country never went for that final option.
The protests brought home the dangers of fake news, The talk around regulation, of course, we have a National Assembly, it will have to go through the normal process. We have a constitution, we have to make sure it does not violate certain provisions of the constitution that has to do with freedom of expression.
“Where you have fake news destroying lives, the government has a responsibility to make sure that there is a level of control. It is not censorship but some level of control,” he concluded.
We hope this has clarified some of the grey areas and set the record straight.

A former actor now turned politician have been on the news for a while now but for obviously wrong reasons after a video surfaced on the social media where he allegedly called for a stricter social media regulations in Nigeria.
Many of his fans and colleagues have expressed shock as to why he seems to be insensitive to many youths that died during the #EndSars protest instead have turned against same people he obviously used to furrow into the political space.
Some notable celebrities such as Davido, Scales and Footballer John Ogu have all expressed disappointment on the former actor and member representing Surulere constituency in Lagos State house of assembly.
Davido wrote; “Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious childhood memories he gave us in movies …”
Another music sensation Skales tweeted “Desmond Elliot tho… can’t trust anyone in politics. Kai e fall my hand”
Super Eagles footballer, John Ogu tweeted; “Desmond Elliot called us all CHILDREN. Just imagine!!!! I’m happy he has advised we go get our PVC. E go shock them all when the time reach.
“The same Social media you used in campaigning, the same Influencers he paid to campaign for him and the same youth who voted for him have all turned CHILDREN in his eyes. Desmond elliot wey be say Na only bucket of water he buy take use as hand sanitizer for him area during COVID wants to tell us how to use Social Media”.
Another Twitter user wrote “Desmond Elliot is more concerned about Respect, The army shooting at peaceful protesters did not annoy him, what annoyed him was people showing their anger at the event.”
@BiyiThePlug was obviously angry by the children name tag, “Desmond Elliot wey join politics yesterday dey call us children, just imagine.”
Well this is really a very wrong time to be named Desmond Elliot as plenty celebrities and fans alike continues to drag him left, right and centre for his infamous call.

The former Nigerian finance minister and coordinating minister of economy Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala has been recommended by the World trade Organisation panel set up to screen the candidates for the top job of the organisation.
This recommendation gives her an edge over the closest rival Yoo Myung-hee of South Korea who has been running neck to neck with her as the announcements are being expected in the coming days as the head of the famous 25years organisation.
Delegates for the members are expected to hold a general council meeting in the coming days to make a formal decision to determine if there is indeed consensus support for Okonjo-Iweala.
Okonjo-Iweala, 66, twice served as Nigeria’s finance minister and has experience working at international governance bodies as a former managing director of the World Bank and as a chair at the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization.
She recently became a United States citizen in year 2019 and many analysts feels that should serve as a good background to getting the backing of the US government during the voting proceedings.
We at Iykeman Online sincerely congratulate her in advance and ultimately wish her Well as she brings her numerous years of experience in this top job.
The club President of FC Bacelona has stepped down. This followed due to many calls by majority of the club’s supporters after the humiliating 8:2 defect at the hands of the FC Bayern Munich in the last semi-final of the champions league.
There were also the aspect of his roles in alledged fallout with the club’s icon Lionel Messi which almost led to his exit from the club in the past transfer window.
The tenure of Mr. Bartomeu was expected to end next year and a new round of Election conducted around march for his successor but with the current situation, an interim board would be constituted to oversee the club affairs.

Bacelona is expected to file out against Juventus in the next champions league round of matches.
Please ensure you leave a comment on what you think about this sudden resignation of Mr. Joseph bartomeu and his staff.
