APC Lagos Condemns Post-election Hate Speech and Fake News
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos has strongly condemned the promotion and sponsorship of post-election hate speeches and fake news on various social media platforms and media spaces. Speaking at a press conference held in Lagos on Thursday, Hon. Seye Oladejo, the Spokesperson of the party, reviewed the election and commented on the false allegations made by opposition parties. He also commended the security agents for their professional conduct despite attempts by some people to create an atmosphere of fear and violence.
Oladejo raised the alarm over the meetings held on Twitter Space aimed at mobilizing unsuspecting people for demonstrations to destabilize and destroy Lagos. He called on the police and other security agencies to curb the excesses of warmongers and scaremongers who are desperate to foment trouble in the State.
“We condemn the post-election hate speeches and fake news still being promoted in various media spaces,” Oladejo said. “May I alert the security agencies by calling their attention to meetings on Twitter Space towards mobilizing unsuspecting people for demonstrations aimed at destroying Lagos State, a replica of the #EndSARS saga.”
He also noted that the general elections were held throughout the nation and the law provides for those not satisfied with the conduct of the exercise to approach the court of law as it is done in civilized climes. Any approach contrary to this under any guise should be viewed seriously.
Oladejo emphasized that the APC in Lagos State is committed to the rule of law and would continue to work towards ensuring that the state is peaceful and prosperous for all its residents. He urged all residents to ignore any divisive and inciting messages and to work together to build a better Lagos for all.
