President Muhammadu Buhari, has directed the Security Agencies to arrest hate speech makers around the country, ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Buhari gave the directive at the 24th Convocation ceremony of the University of Uyo, on Saturday.
The President, who was represented by the Director of Corporate Communications, National Universities Commission, Ibrahim Yakasai, said that development and progress could not thrive in a hate-filled and divisive environment.
He stated that the Federal Government would not condone or tolerate incendiary remarks capable of causing fear and spread hatred among the people, from any person or group of persons.
The President said: “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.”
The President, called on the new graduates to look beyond Leaders who had failed themselves and the nation, but should choose their heroes from among those who believe in the progress of Nigeria, and emulate those honest and hardworking in their professions.
Buhari added that, there is a need for the curriculum of Nigerian Universities to be diversified to include entrepreneurial skills, to help graduates to employ themselves and others after graduation.
