Federal Government launches national campaign against fake news

Federal Government has launched a national campaign against fake news in the country.

The government said the essence of the campaign was to sensitize all Nigerians to the dangers posed to the peace and security, and the corporate existence of Nigeria by the phenomenon.

Speaking during the launch in Abuja, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said there was an epidemic sweeping the world, saying that if left unchecked, it could be worse than all the plagues that the world has recorded put together.

Mohammed added that the development was a clear and present danger to global peace and security, even as he said it is a threat to democracy.
