SENATOR OLUREMI TINUBU (LAGOS CENTRAL) HAS SAID THAT HATE SPEECH AND QUIT NOTICES CANNOT MOVE A NATION FORWARD.
The senator spoke at a Town Hall meeting with the theme Embracing our Complexity and Diversity with her constituents on Friday at Arcade Hall, Eko Club, Surulere, Lagos.
Describing Nigeria as a complex country, she noted that her greatness lies in the diversity of the different groups that make up the country.
Tinubu commended the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, one of the member groups that formed the Northern coalition, for withdrawing their quit notice.
“I also appeal to others to follow suit and take back any statements capable of leading to hostilities and apprehension,” she said.
She called on Nigerians to re-evaluate themselves and those around them to adequately benefit from the diversity of ideas and experiences.
According to her, other states have a lot to learn from Lagos State.
She said that Lagos “with all the different ethnicities that make up Nigeria residing within her boundaries, has proven that it is possible to coexist peacefully.”
