'Lifeless': Fayose Defends Buhari, Says Trump's Comment Is 'Hate Speech'
Hate speech is one thing that the current administration has asked Nigerians to desist from.
There is punishment for persons who engage in such hate speech and Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has now considered President Donald Trump's alleged description of President Muhammadu Buhari as 'hate speech'.
Reports circulated on Monday, claiming that President Trump had referred to the Nigerian leader as 'lifeless'.
Nigerians have reacted to Trump's comment in different ways and the Governor of Ekiti dropped his reaction on his Twitter page on Tuesday.
He also wondered what should have happened if that statement had come from him, demanding that President Buhari should act.
Governor Fayose said: "Just wondering when President Buhari will charge "undiplomatic Trump" for this international "Hate Speech" because if it were to be Fayose uunnm!! ...... Thank God Trump is not a Nigerian.... National security supremacy would have applied".
The Governor of Ekiti State, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, is known for criticising the current administration of the All Progressives Congress.
