PDP accuses APC of trying to use hate speech to suppress Freedom of speech


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused the All Progressives Congress, APC, party of trying to use its planned clamp down on hate speech as a ploy to criminalise freedom of speech and association.

PDP, in a series of tweet, said the “Constitution of Nigeria in Chapter IV (33), is very clear on freedom of Speech and Fundamental Rights of all Nigerians,” but that APC is using the hate speech clampdown to “coax Nigerians against demanding for fulfillment of its promises.”

PDP reminds APC of undelivered campaign promises to Nigerians after over two years

The party however showed a snapshot of the campaign promises made to Nigerians by APC before Nigerians voted them into power, saying, APC must focus on meeting the promises instead of threatening Nigerians and trying to criminalise freedom of speech.
