Information Minister Labaran Maku says the social media should be used as a vehicle to inculcate moral values in youth. Maku made the call in Abuja while speaking at the 2014 National Conference on "Be the Change You Want to See," organised by the African Forum on Religion and Development.

A statement by the minister's spokesman Joseph Mutah said the youth had become veritable tools for social change and moral reawakening because of the reach of the social media.

He said moral decadence and other societal ills could not be tackled by law enforcement alone but through moral re-orientation to align the human mind with God's vision to achieve success.

The convener of the conference, Dr. Williams Okoye admonished Nigerians to stop apportioning blames on the rise in societal ills but to become the change agent that would shape the future of the nation.
