Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, has said that Nigerians have started supporting the hate speech bill which sought to address all issues of discrimination associated with religious and ethnic persecution in the country.

The lawmaker said, “I can tell you that the bill is receiving strong support from Nigerians across the country.



“Notable personalities across various professions are beginning to speak out in support of the bill in the media. This is not to leave out some members of the Academia that are rallying support for the bill’s passage by the National Assembly.”

He added that recent events have vindicated the introduction of the Hate Speech bill and expressed full confidence that Nigerians would come out massively to support it when the time is right.




He said, “Like I have always state, only those who are against the unity of Nigeria will oppose the bill by hiding under guise of protecting ‘Free Speech’.

“The Hate Speech Bill targets acts of discrimination and absolutely not Freedom of Speech as those with sinister motives who are opposed to the bill are trying to mislead Nigerians into believing.


“Before Nigeria is consumed by religious and ethnic violence, we must all rise to save the country from people using hate speech for personal gains.”
