Hate speech and quit notices only hurt Nigeria - Oluremi TinubuSenator Oluremi Tinubu (APC-Lagos Central), has called on Nigerians to re-evaluate themselves and desist from hate speech and quit notices which hurt the country, Punch reports.

She praised the Arewa youths for withdrawing their earlier October 1 quit notice, and urged other ethnic groups to do the same.
She stated:“I also appeal to others to follow suit and take back any statements capable of leading to hostilities and apprehension."
Tinubu used Lagos as an example of how Nigerians of all ethnicities can live together peaceably as she noted that the state was very diverse in the make-up of its residents.
According to Tinubu, other states had a lot to learn from Lagos which“with all the different ethnicities that make up Nigeria residing within her boundaries, has proven that it is possible to coexist peacefully.”
