Publisher of Ovation International Magazine has knocked Nigerian bloggers over what he described as their penchant for peddling “blatant falsehood”.
He said what was published on the internet most times was misleading, adding that the power of the internet was exaggerated and overrated in the country.
Dele Momodu, writing on the quest by youths to have a young person rule Nigeria, wrote: “Everyone who is able to buy some data sees himself as an omnipotent blogger who can install or bring down any government.
”Suddenly every blogger is a celebrity. I make it a habit to check the number of followers they command and control. I check their tweets and scrutinise their influence.
”People with less than 50,000 followers claim to own the heavens and the earth in a country with a population fast approaching 200 million.
