The call for the ban of social media during the November 7 polls by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), John Kudalor has been backed by a Security Analyst, Irbad Ibrahim with the reason being that some Ghanaian youth are irresponsible with the use of social media.

According to him, the call for the social media ban during this year’s election is in the right direction because some Ghanaian youth have been abusing and misusing the social media handles as compared to other youth in the advanced countries.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show to disagree with those calling for the maintaining of social media during the November 7 poll, Irbad Ibrahim insisted some Ghanaian youth are derailing the social media platform by showing forth explicit pictures and sex tapes on campus instead of using it to enhance their academic courses.

He emphasised that the abuse and misuse of social media in Ghana outweighs the benefits the country is supposed to derive from the platform and so shutting it down will not affect the country as compared to chaos which is possible if not checked.

He predicted that fake election results and false account of event on the Election Day is inevitable if social media is not ban during the November 7 polls; stressing that abuse and misuse of social media make it normal to ban it during the elections.

“. . some Ghanaian youth are irresponsible on social media; they have been abusing and misusing the platform. On our side of the world, we are not taking advantage of the social media to do what is right for the country except to circulate sex tapes and do a lot of photoshops to denigrate others,” he pooh-poohed.
