President Goodluck Jonathan has decried the use of the social media worldwide to create social discontent and anarchy in the society.
The President said this when he met with a delegation of traditional rulers and leaders from Bayelsa, on Tuesday, in Abuja.

He said that the social media initially meant for good had become a tool to disseminate evil.

‘‘ These days, there are all kinds of stories. It is all over the world, leaders are being lambasted, especially with the social media now.
’’People use what knowledge had created for negative reasons.
‘‘Just as I was told that the person who invented dynamite, later regretted that invention because he thought he was coming up with something to solve human problem.
“ But when he got to know about the level of destruction, human lives that are being blown up because of explosion, the man regretted that invention.

“What is supposed to be used for the common good was turned to negative purposes.
“I always say that I will not even expect praises now because hardly do people praise serving leaders. It is when you leave, people will begin to know.

Jonathan pledged to do his best to create the enabling environment for the nation’s economy to thrive, notwithstanding the challenges facing the country.

According to him, 2015 will be full of challenges for Nigerians because of the early elections, saying everywhere will be overheated as from Friday.

Earlier, Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa, who spoke on behalf of the delegation, said they were in the State House to felicitate with the President and his family in the spirit of the festive season.

He assured the president that Bayelsa people will not relent in supporting their son and wished him a victorious new year.

Gov. Dickson commended President Jonathan for his transformation agenda which, he said, was impacting positively on Nigerians.
He said the President’s home state was peaceful and was in safe hands.
