The Federal Government has warned Nigerians against making statements
that are capable of undermining the country’s peace and security.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday, the Minister of
Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, urged Nigerians to feel
free to reside in any part of their choice across the country, saying
the government has the capacity to maintain law and order.
He said there is no reason for any Nigerian to feel unsafe anywhere in
the country, warning that the government would not tolerate any threat
to the unity, peace and security of the country under any guise.
”There is zero tolerance for actions and speeches capable of inciting
one part of the country against another, and the security agencies are
fully on the ground to deal decisively with any individual or group
that engages in incendiary activities,” Alhaji Mohammed said
He therefore advised all Nigerians, irrespective of where they reside,
to go about their daily activities without fear.
