Comedian and human rights Activist, Adebowale David Adedayo, popularly known as Mr Macaroni has tackled President Tinubu’s Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila for saying that Social media is a menace and should be regulated.
Gbajabiamila, had in a book launch in Lagos on Thursday stated that social media has become a societal menace and must be regulated.
In his words; “Social media has become a societal menace and must be regulated. As many people do not understand that once the send button is hit, there is a potential to reach millions of people around the world which is capable of causing a great danger not just in the society but even unintended consequences to the individuals that are receiving information which may include security of life.”
While some supported Femi Gbajabiamila, it didn’t go down well with many youths including skitmaker Mr Macaroni shared screenshots of old tweets of Gbajabiamila back in 2014 slamming previous governments.
Taking us on a memory lane, Macaroni questioned Gbajabiamila saying; “Social Media wasn’t a menace when Mr Gbajabiamila used it to address the Government as Vagabonds and Barbarians in 2014. Today he is Chief of Staff and he suddenly realizes that Social media is a menace…. HYPOCRITICAL VAGABONDS IN POWER AND BARBARIANS AT THE GATE!!!!.”
