We Now Monitor Social Media For Anti-Government And Anti-Military Information – Military


Director of Defence Information, Major-General John Enenche, told Channels Television that it became necessary in the light of troubling activities and misinformation capable of jeopardizing the unity of the country.

He made this comment less than 48 hours after President Buhari made his national broadcast that some of the discussions on social media in his absence crossed the line and left him distressed.
 Major General Enenche is of the opinion that social media has always been a challenge all over the world and for the military, it is no different.

“It is a double-edged sword and we are also having a bit of it,” he said when he appeared on Channels Television’s News At 10, hours after President Buhari met with service chiefs and ordered them to strengthen their operations.
“Imagine when the President came back and addressed the nation, not up to 30 minutes later, a fake speech of the Commander-In-Chief was being circulated, in order to do what? To derail the people. 
If you are not very sharp and if you didn’t listen to the speech or you don’t have a copy of it like I had it almost immediately, you wouldn’t know.  So, looking at it from that perspective, it is a challenge everywhere.”

Having observed the possibility that the social media can be misused, the military has taken steps to address that. One of such steps is the establishment of strategic media centres.

“What are we doing? In the military, we are now taking on it more seriously than ever. We have our strategic media centres that monitor the social media to be able to sieve out and react to all the ones that will be anti-government, be anti-military, (and) be anti-security.

We tackle them appropriately with appropriate responses. Ahead of that, we are also proactive. We have measures in place, scientific measures to be able to sieve this information and also to get the public and let them know that some of this information they are getting is not genuine are not true and their objective is an anti-corporate existence of this country,” he said.

STOP DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

It is a natural phenomenon for human beings to interact and engage in relationship and it’s pertinent to know that no relationship exist without ‘hiccups’ because our level of exposure and method of socialisation differs.

Domestic Violence has been from time immemorial but the sudden increasing rate is absurd.

A marriage does not exist without a formal agreement to certain things and wants of life. You cannot accept to go on a journey with total stranger because I believe that no matter how short, you will have a clue about your partner’s lifestyle.

It is often said that globalisation has both good and evil embedded in it. Back then, it is customary for African parents to do thorough background check on the partner of their child but now, reverse is the case in the modern parenthood (sad).

Domestic violence is often ignored as it usually happens behind closed doors and it gradually becoming a norm of marriage while people are being subjective about it.
Domestic violence is a universal phenomenon. I’ve heard several cases of domestic violence ranging from merciless beating, battery, Psychological and Emotional torture, Sexual Assault, Pouring of acid and even killing.

After several acclaimed and double checked assurance of love and support for each other irrespective of the situation; people still go ahead to hurt one another even to the extent of taking lives (pathetic).

On this note I say, get involve with a person for the right reasons.

REASONS

  1. I want to get married to end loneliness: This awkward saying amaze me every time I hear it. Bro/Sis,  do you know little are the responsibilities attached to being single than married? If you’re not ready to be responsible for another person please enjoy being single.
  2. To achieve same status with friends: The uniqueness to every human is the time frame of their life success. It’s never too late or fast. Maintain your pace
  3. Societal pressure: Human beings make a way of life(culture) which in turn dictate their way of life. Every man to his/her cross.
  4. To run away from family problem: No one ever leaves his shadow behind. Tackle your issues and get ready for the intending family.
  5. Legalise sexual affair: No soup maintains its taste forever. See beyond body contacts.

WHY DO VICTIMS STICK WITH ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP

In many cases of domestic violence, a therapeutic separation is necessary to gain safety and direct attention to the gravity of the need for change.
I know this will not go down well with many religious moguls but the truth is, only a living have a say.

  1. What will people say?
    This is what I termed “Personality Disorder” putting people before yourself is lack of certain deficiency in your life. Whether good/bad, it is expected that people will talk so why not care less about their opinion as noise doesn’t matter in a bargain involving two focus people.
  2. Where do I start from?

Start from that point that you are right now…

  1. I love him

Well, love is a two- edged sword when it have one edge, it is a knife. No one loves the dead to the extent of agreeing to be buried alive along the dead. Love must be on same lane… no one moves to fast lane leaving the other on service lane

  1. I can’t have a broken home

There’s a different between a home and a house… when it becomes scary and a no go area, it’s broken already. Stay healthy to build your home to a desirable stage. Women, do not provoke your husband to anger… Men love and cherish the good thing that you have found so that you can obtain favour

  1. Is for my children

Think about the psychological effect… 90% of every child from abusive home have the tendency of abusing their spouse. Sticking to an abusive marriage is like strengthening a generational curse. Break off the hold today and set your children free. Be alive for them.

I hereby call on the government, social workers,  the media and religious leaders to help lend a voice on this issue before it eats too deep into the fabric of our country.
