Apostle Johnson Suleman
General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman has taken a swipe at the minister of state for labour and employment, Festus Keyamo after he called for the regulation of social media.
Keyamo on Monday said laws need to be put in place to regulate and sanitise social media usage in the country.
To achieve this, the minister, who was the spokesperson for the APC presidential campaign council, said the country must first curb the spread of fake news. He added that this can destroy the fabric of the country, and to achieve this, fake social media accounts must first be eradicated.
In reaction, Suleman tweeted on Tuesday that Keyamo was the author of fake news, adding that the minister only wants social media regulated because of the attacks he gets from it.
He highlighted how Keyamo sued him in 2017 on behalf of a Canada-based woman Stephanie Otobo on allegations of s3xual assault, harassment, poisoning, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, breach of trust among others.
”One of the Authors of Fake News who poses to be a lawyer now wants social media regulated because of the constant bashing he gets. (Gal 6.7). 2017 he connived with a Canadian-based lady whom I NEVER met,” Suleman said.
”He dropped a senseless legal suit online and copied over 200 bloggers. I woke up to find a suit supposedly meant for me online.
”Mr lawyer, what do you call that news you were peddling to destroy a man’s reputation? you know all you did. You were then made a SAN for a job well done.
”What you did to me and others will haunt you for life down to your generation. Leave social media, it’s very okay and needs no regulation.”
