Abudja, Aug. 7, 2017 (NAN)- A Non-Governmental Organization in Kano, North West Niferia Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) has called on members of the public to support ongoing campaign against hate and dangerous speeches.

The CITAD Senior Programme Officer, Peace Project, Mr Isah Garba, who made the call at a press briefing on Monday in Kano, said the centre had recorded 601 hate speeches in July from across the country.

He explained that 309 of the hate speeches recorded during the period, representing 50 per cent, were on ethnicity while 202 were on religion.

Garba said Nigerians must stop giving any form of opportunity for those engaged in hate speeches to thrive.

« The public should support the crusade by shunning hate speakers and refusing to be intimated by their actions, » he said.

He stressed that such response was necessary to promote peace and unity in the country.

Garba urged the media to deny purveyors of hate speech any form of access to spread their vile, saying it was fundamental to shun those bent on sowing hatred and disunity in the country.
