Air Force Boss Warns Against Use Of Social Media To Promote Hate Speech
The Chief of Air Staff, Sadiq Abubakar, has said that the government would not tolerate separatist movements and inflammatory statements that threaten Nigeria unity and stability adding that Nigeria’s unity is settled and not negotiable.
Abubakar said this on Tuesday in Abuja during a workshop on information management for public relations officers in the Nigerian Air Force.
“We are all not unaware of the use of social media by some elements to spread falsehood in addition to promoting hate speeches, violence, anarchy, and confusion in our society,” he said.
“The message of hate and violence does not augur well for the development of our great nation. I, therefore, implore all relevant stakeholders to focus on the use of the social media to inform, educate and entertain as originally intended.”
