‘CCB right on Bu­ratai’s as­set’

Daily Trust - - ONLINE REACTIONS -

Per­haps we – at least many Nige­ri­ans – are yet to grasp the full im­pli­ca­tion of how the e-me­dia op­er­ates. Many sim­ply use the chan­nels to fight an imag­ined or real threat with­out ever es­tab­lish­ing the facts. Thus, we have many peo­ple sim­ply ac­cused, tried, and con­victed on the so­cial me­dia. Cer­tainly, it is time we ac­knowl­edge the fact that the so­cial me­dia can­not be the ba­sis of any con­vic­tion as no one yet – other than pure con­jec­ture and spec­u­la­tion – has been con­victed. Just look at the noise gen­er­ated by the ef­forts to try the for­mer NSA, Col Sambo Da­suki (rtd) and the loud ca­coph­ony of gov­er­nor Ayo Fayose for il­lus­tra­tions. Maigari naiyamd@ya­hoo.com
