Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, FFK, has conditions which will make him support the hate speech bill before the Senate.
The bill which is being sponsored by Deputy Chief Whip, Senator Sabi Abdullahi, has passed its second reading.
The bill which aims to criminalize hate speech has met with strong resistance from Nigerians from all walls of life, including former military head of states, General Ibrahim Babangida.
Reacting to the bill, Femi Fani-Kayode stated that he “will support the Hate Speech Bill if its provisions are made retroactive & if its first victims are Buhari, Bola Tinubu, Lai Mohammed, Nasir El Rufai, Festus Keyamo & Rotimi Amaechi. Promise to hang them first for their hateful words over the years & the Bill gets my support”.
