Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia has advised Nigerian youths to use social media in propagating ventures and discourse that promote national unity.
Ikpeazu said this on Sunday in Umuahia during the Abia Social Media Converge, an event organised by the state government with the theme, “Social Media for Good Governance”.
The governor said the average Nigerian youth “is industrious and has capacity to give meaningful contributions that will engender socio-economic development”.
He said that the speed, coverage and visual attributes which the social media offers could be used to promote the efforts made by the government to improve the citizens’ welfare.
“If you understand the agenda of the government and that its agenda will add value to the society, then promote it through social media.
“This understanding will enable you to offer constructive criticism to the government when it begins to move in the wrong direction.
“We need to stop emphasising those things that separate us along religious, political and ethnic lines.
“I advise social media users to emphasis things that unite us as a nation,” Ikpeazu said.
