If you don’t want to be criticised, then you don’t have to be in government - Says Alaafin


Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oyo State, has reacts to the move by National Assembly over its proposed to re-introduce the anti-hate speech bill.

At a book presentation and platinum recognition as parts of activities marking the 70th anniversary of the Nigerian Tribune, Alaafin disclosed that anyone who doesn’t want to be criticised has no business in government.

It is very dangerous to pass such bill into Nigerian system, it's bad to make death as a penalty of hate speech.

Because If you don’t want to be criticised, then you don’t have to go into politics neither be in the government.

If I could remember, before we gained independence, the whole school we had at Northern side is 123 while the southern side of the country has about 5,000 schools. So I don't see any reason why we will allow the illiterate to govern the literate people. It cannot work and can never work.
