Silencing opposition and then claiming that the opposition is weak is a joke.  You know why you need to encourage opposition and dissent is because if you allow it, you will hear about the issues which affect your people, then you can work on those needs and issues to make you a better government.  Do not say I did not warn you. I write about these things for those who care to read.  When you kill off any opposing views, you then are a dictator.  The world will remember and you will go down in history as a dictator.  Yes, dictators do not care to listen to the views of the people.

Allow the opposition to do their work.  Allow voices of dissent.  Allow the journalists to do their work.  We are living in a world where we are all interconnected.  The only way you can stop this tide of communication is if you shut down the internet for your country.  Even China stopped doing this.  So some third world country which depends on foreign donations wants to try it.. Good luck with that buddies.

Build your government into a strong one by listening to the voices of the people.  You make a big mistake to stifle dissent.  How else would you know what is bothering your people? Your paid people will never tell you the truth since their food on their dinner tables depend on you.
