Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has condemned the accommodation of hate speeches by radio stations in Kano state.

According to him, such action would lead to disaster for the state in a time where it needs lasting peace.

Speaking at a meeting with Chief Executives of the respective FM Radio stations in Kano at his palace Sanusi said the attitude of giving access to political jobbers to engage in negative and destructive spin can ignite tension and cause chaos in a volatile city like Kano. According to him, heads of stations have an abiding obligation to nip the trend in the bud.

Citing the example of the recent murder of Bridget, the 70-year-old Igbo women hacked to death by an angry mob for allegedly blaspheming Prophet Muhammed to buttress his point, the monarch said the issue was blown out of proportion and highly politicised by those who hide under the right to freedom of expression to settle their scores.

He however stated that it was the highest act of professional irresponsibility for the FM stations to give an unimpeded access to politicians to spit venom on peoples’ reputation simply because Nigeria was in the grip of a democratic rule.
