Jonathan Reminds Nigerians of “Freedom Enjoyed” under his Government
Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday took a swipe at the move by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to curb hate speech.
The ex-leader shared a photo of a quote he gave in December 2014 saying he was the most insulted president in the world.
The post so far has over 3,190 comments from his over two million followers as of 8pm. The post reads:
“I am the most abused and insulted President in the world but when I leave office, you will all remember me for the total ‘freedom’ you enjoyed under me.”
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo had said last week that thenceforth, the Federal Government would treat hate speech as terrorism, while the military said it would be monitoring comments on social media to tackle anti-government and anti-security views.
