“There is no regulation, old or new, from the Ministry of Interior orany federal government agency requiring the recording of all calls or the monitoring of Social Media platforms like WhatsApp, Twitter or Facebook.

“We are therefore using this medium to inform all Nigerians that what is being circulated in this regard is totally false and should be disregarded.

”We thank all Nigerians who have reached out to us in an effort to confirm the authenticity or otherwise of this information, which is now being widely circulated on the Social Media.

“This is the best way to ensure that the purveyors of false news do not dominate our media space,” Muhammed said.

At the weekend rumour was rife on social media that under an alleged Ministry of Interior Regulation, all phone calls and social media posts made by the citizens were being monitored and recorded.
