Arising from its meeting in Lokoja, Kogi State with attendance of all the National Officers as well as chairman and secretaries of state councils, NEC frowned at some social media influencers who indiscriminately masquerading as professional journalists and members of NUJ to desist or risk being reported to the Police.

NEC equally rejected in entirety a step by the Federal Government to regulate social operators in the country.
