The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has written a letter to the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, over allegations of hate speech.
In a report by Leakblast, the PDP alleged that the chairman of the APC in Kano state, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas ordered party members to attack and punish anybody caught trying to steal votes during the 2023 election.
Abbas who was speaking at the swearing-in ceremony of the 44 newly elected local government chairmen allegedly stated that members should take actions into their hands, adding that nothing will happen.
Alhaji Shehu Wada Sagagi, the PDP Kano state chairman noted that the party has drafted a letter to the Inspector General of Police and other relevant government agencies seeking the prosecution of Abbas over hate speech.
The PDP explained that he is not surprised because it is in the nature of Abbas to make inciting utterances that is hate speech.
While stating that the statements were empty threats, Sagagi added such utterances need to be addressed
Meanwhile, Salihu Lukman, the director-general of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), said the defection of femi Fani-Kayode to the APC was stalled due to the strong internal democratic culture of the party.
Lukman, who spoke on Friday, February 12, in a statement obtained by Leakblast, said Fani-Kayode “was not welcome to join APC because he doesn’t have the values required to be a member.”
