Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has advised faith leaders to be careful with the use of social media to avoid promoting conflicts that could go out of hands.
The vice president gave the advice during interfaith religious dialogue on promoting religious tolerance and acceptance organized by the United Arab Emirate Embassy in Abuja.
Noting that government regulation on social media was not necessarily the way to go, Osinbajo stressed that those persons of faith and leaders that use social media actively owe a responsibility to the society and to everyone else to ensure that it is not allowed to become an instrument of conflict and war.
According to him, a great deal of inter-religious dialogue tends to focus on mediating the differences between the various religions, creeds and various positions, adding that it was absolutely necessary.
