Governor Udom Emmanuel has cautioned youths in the state against the use of social media to perpetuate unwarranted criticisms of government policies and programs.
Mr. Emmanuel handed down the warning during a stakeholders meeting organized by the Divine Mandate Campaign organization.
He said though democracy is a government for the people and by the people, it was not expedient for everyone to desecrate the Seat of Government and be unnecessarily critical of its policies without detailed information.
Governor Emmanuel sued for respect to constituted Authority and decorum in the use of Social media space as applicable in other states.
According to him, this could amount to washing their dirty linens in the Social media space stressing that there were several channels to make suggestions and contributions to the development of the state without violating the sanctity of Governance.
Governor Emmanuel also cautioned against the savagery of cultism where human lives no longer attract values.
He noted that the Anti-Cultism and kidnapping law was still in force and anyone caught shall be duly prosecuted by the extant laws.
