I fear not – Fani Kayode reacts to Buhari orders to clampdown on social media hate

Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation, has reacted to an order by President Muhammadu Buhari, directing security agencies to tackle the propagation of hate speeches, especially through social media.

In a tweet via his Twitter handle, the former Minister stated that the order will only strengthen hate speakers, adding that he is not scared.

He wrote, ”Threatening to arrest “prominent people” that speak out against Buhari on social media changes nothing. It will only swell our ranks and strengthen our resolve.

”To resist evil and oppose tyranny is a divine obligation and sacred duty. Every true leader must honor it. NO FEAR!

Recall that Nigerians on Friday kicked against Buhari’s order to clampdown on those patronising hate speeches on social media.
