30 January 2017 National
Amid speculation over the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari, Oyo state Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has refuted reports that governors were summoned for an emergency meeting in Abuja to discuss the issue.
The governor, who spoke in Ibadan yesterday, clarified that his trip to Abuja was for a scheduled meeting with World Bank officials and not for any governors meeting as earlier rumored.
While reacting to negative online comments that trailed his recent interaction with the protesting students of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso, Ajimobi said it was high time the medium was regulated to check abuses.
Acknowledging the importance of the new media for social mobilization and creation of awareness on developmental issues, policies and other positive intents, he admitted that the medium was also being abused by some individuals.
