President Muhammadu Buhari has called on world leaders to come up with proposals to create a digital world that is accessible, inclusive and safe to all.
He made the call in his keynote speech at the 2019 Annual Investment Meeting in Dubai on Monday.
Buhari, in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and publicity, Femi Adesina, said a certain level of regulation was needed to preserve the integrity of the digital economy.
The theme of the summit is: ‘Mapping the Future of Foreign Direct Investment: Enriching World Economies through Digital Globalization.’’
Acknowledging that digital globalisation is transforming the world almost every day with innovations and transformative ideas, the Nigerian leader cautioned that the cyber world would remain a constant threat if left unregulated.
He decried the use of the cyberspace to manipulate elections, subvert the democratic rights of citizens as well as propagate violence.
