Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, has reiterated that the global problem is the unregulated use of social media and other digital platforms.
According to Akahi News, Mohammed said this today at the Global Media and Information Literacy Week in Abuja. He said that leaders around the world are having trouble determining what information is true or false on these social media platforms.
Mohammed mentioned that “Nurturing Trust:” is this year’s Global Media and Information Literacy Week’s theme.The phrase “A Media and Information Literacy Imperative” is not only pertinent but also appropriate.
He says that people need to be able to evaluate information critically and use it wisely right away. This is a critical skill.
He stated, “As I ponder the state of our world and the enormous challenge it faces, particularly with the unregulated use of social media and other digital platforms, I see the urgent need for every person to be equipped with the ability to critically evaluate and wisely use the information at their disposal.”
However, the Minister of Information and Culture stated that he was confident that the suggestions and contributions made by participants from 193 countries that are members of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) would be helpful in providing solutions to the problems caused by the unregulated use of social media and other online platforms.
Through the use of media and information literacy, contributions and questions will all be focused on determining the connections that can be made to fostering trust among our societies and individuals.
“I am optimistic that contributions and questions will all be geared toward finding the links to building trust among our societies and individuals through the use of media and information literacy, beginning with the parallel sessions that begin immediately and ending with the final plenary session on Friday morning.
“I warmly welcome you to Nigeria as I urge you all to give this your full attention, knowing that the world awaits the outcome of this Global MIL Week.The minister continued, “I encourage you all to discover Abuja and enjoy your stay.”
