He said the measure has proven dependable in curbing the dissemination of fear and panic in some countries.
IGP Kudalor made this known at a dialogue session with some journalists on Thursday, May 26.
“At one stage I was even saying that if it becomes critical on the eve and the election day we shall block all social media as other countries have done.”
He promised that a firm decision will be announced soon.
But journalists seemed not enthused by the intention by the police chief as the President of the Ghana Journalists Association quickly rebuffed the suggestion.
“On social media, we will humbly appeal to [IGP] not to go there,” Roland Affail Monney said, “because social media are cousins of traditional media.”
He explained that journalists in mainstream media have depended on social media for tips and leads.
“So we beg him to not even contemplate banning social media but his outfit can do something to at least regulate socially determined content.”
