Former military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, has reacted to the Hate speech Bill, says that nobody can muzzle Nigerians and deprive them freedom of speech. He added ‘Unless people are able to express themselves, those in government or in authority will not know what is happening in the country.’

General Babangida also said there was no basis for the bill which has passed the second reading in the Senate insisting that no one can deny Nigerians their fundamental rights. Babangida spoke in his Minna Uphill residence when he received visiting National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Chief Christopher Isiguzo.
