When My Clothes Were Stolen Some Years Ago, It Was An Igbo Man That Bought Me New Ones - Jimi Disu

As the governorship elections in Lagos draw closer, veteran journalist and public affairs analyst, Jimi Disu, has spoken out against the use of hateful comments towards certain tribes to secure votes for preferred candidates.

Disu, who appeared on Nigeria Info FM's 'Dailies Today', lamented that he had been bombarded with hate speech messages in recent days, aimed at making him turn against a particular tribe in Lagos ahead of the election.

Disu criticized those trying to cause ethnic divisions in the name of politics and winning elections, emphasizing that he is a detribalized Nigerian who does not believe in such divisions.

He narrated a personal story to highlight how an Igbo man had shown him compassion in a moment of distress when his friends abandoned him, further emphasizing that hate speech is unnecessary and could lead to consequences in the event of Nigeria going up in a conflagration.
