The Oyo state governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde has said that Governors of South West in a recent meeting held in Lagos didn’t vote in favor of a clampdown on social media but agreed that the current cybercrime act should deal with issues in that regard.

Governor Makinde, disclosed this on Tuesday while inaugurating the Oyo state Judicial Panel of Inquiry.
