Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has lamented that people under the age of 50, who have never witnessed the “mental and physical scars of war”, are those engaging in misleading and vocal demands for secession as well as hate speeches.
He spoke yesterday at the opening of a two-day national seminar on, “Unity in Diversity: Security and National Development”, which took at the Institute for Security Studies in Abuja.
The Acting President was supported in his stance by former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd) and the Director-General of Department of State Services (DSS) Lawal Daura.
Osinbajo emphasised the need to emphatically control the flow of hate speeches.
He asserted that it was a fallacy for anyone to assume that any part of Nigeria would thrive enough on its own.
On his part Director-General of DSS affirmed the secret service’s determination to frontally confront all forces aiming to cause divisions and threaten national growth.
