Security Agencies Should Detain Divisive Speech Makers – President Buhari
President Buhari has urged Nigerian elites to refrain from misleading the people through their unguarded utterances.
He gave the warning at the 24th convocation ceremony of the University of Uyo, on Saturday.
The President, who was represented by Mr Ibrahim Yakasai, Director of Corporate Communications, National University Commission (NUC), said that development and progress could not thrive in a hate-filled and divisive society.
He said that the FG would not condone or tolerate incendiary remarks from any person or group of persons which were meant to cause fear and spread hate in the country. .
“At this point, I want to be very clear and equivocal, that the Federal Government will never condone or tolerate incendiary remarks from any person or group of persons, which are meant to harass, intimidate, cause fear and spread hate, no matter how highly placed such a person is.
Law enforcement agencies should fish out people who make inciting statements, instigate civil disobedience, broadcast hate speeches or stir strife, riot and rebellion and bring them to book. We should continue to live together as brothers and sisters,” Buhari said.
