Meanwhile, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday, June 20, met with Northern traditional rulers and charged them to always speak up against hate speeches and divisive voices in their respective domains.
In his opening remarks at the meeting held at the old Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja, Osinbajo said the meeting had become imperative in view of a spate of divisive statements in recent weeks, pitching the South-East against the North.
He maintained that the divisive rhetoric and agitations were unjustifiable, unacceptable and often times illegal.
He stressed that Nigeria had already seen enough violence and bloodshed during its history. According to him, the price of Nigeria’s unity has already been paid with the blood and lives of hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians lost.
