Senator Oluremi Tinubu of the Lagos Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, at a town hall meeting with her constituents on Friday said that hate speech and quit notices will only hurt the nation. She then called on other parts of the country to learn from Lagos State, where millions of people from diverse ethnic and religious background co-exist peacefully.
Describing Nigeria as a complex country, Tinubu noted that Nigeria’s greatness lies in the diversity of the different groups that make up the country.
The town hall meeting, the 23rd in the series was tagged “Embracing our Complexity and Diversity”.
She called on Nigerians to re-evaluate themselves and those around them to adequately benefit from the diversity of ideas and experiences.
According to her, other states have a lot to learn from Lagos State.
She said that Lagos “with all the different ethnicities that make up Nigeria residing within her boundaries, has proven that it is possible to coexist peacefully.”
