The carefully packaged Lecture is part of the event to unfold the real professionals in the news blogging business as unfolding events in the country in the last few weeks have exposed the dangers inherent in using the cyberspace for credible messages especially as the country moves closer to the 2019 General Elections.

It is not surprising that with the sophistication that has evolved around IT and communication, using the cyberspace to convey credible messages and information has become endangered.
