Senate Distances Self From Hate Speeches Bill

The Senate has distanced itself from the controversial hate speech which had been attracting criticism from all segments of the Nigerian society

The senate explains that it did not initiate the bill, whose first version stipulates a death penalty for those convicted for hate speeches

Senate spokesman, Godiya Akwashiki, speaking on Monday, says the bill was solely sponsored by the senate deputy chief whip, Sabi Abdullahi

The senate, according to Akwashiki is worried over criticism by the PDP that it initiated the bill, to pave the way for an alleged third term agenda for President Muhammadu Buhari

He explains that the senate will determine the fate of the bill after a rigorous debate

The controversial bill was killed by the eight Senate.
