Delta State Governor and vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ifeanyi Okowa, has bemoaned the rising trend of cyberbullying.

Okowa stated this on Tuesday in his speech at the northern Christian Youth Assembly Summit themed, ‘Unifying Nigeria: The Role of Northern Christian Youths and Women’, according to NAN.

Stating this in response to comments about the upcoming 2023 elections, the governor added that Nigerians should be able to express their opinions online, as he stressed the need for citizens to act rationally rather than emotionally.

“We are beginning to see bullying in the cyberspace of our country, I think that everybody should have space, time, to be able to think, make comments without being bullied,” he said.

Speaking further, Okowa stated that youths need to be prepared for the future by participating actively in the present.

“The real truth is, our youths, particularly youth leaders, must be in position to have a clear understanding of things so that they are able to guide others aright..

“This is because if you have a leadership that is not able to provide that true leadership of guiding people aright and people begin to think in the wrong way, then you create further problems rather than finding solutions and we all go the wrong path,” he said.
