UPDATE !!!: Falana Insists – Border Closure And Hate Speech Bill Are Illegal

Published

on

Mr. Femi Falana(SAN), the Lagos Fiery Lawyer, has finally declared that the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government was allegedly misled into having the erroneous impression that only border closure can guarantee food security and economic development in the country.

The human rights lawyer, a social crusader and human rights activist added that the National Assembly lacks the constitutional powers to promulgate any law under the guise of Hate Speech, saying such was not captured under the exclusive and concurrent lists of the 1999 constitution.

Falana went ahead to larify that going ahead to promulgate such law would not only betray the trust reposed in the National Assembly by the Nigerian populace but would erode the powers of the state legislative arm since Nigeria operates a federal system of government.

While speaking in his Ilawe Ekiti country home on Wednesday during the burial procession for Mrs. Ibijola Falana, the Lawyer said it was wrong for President Muhammadu Buhari to have closed the borders indefinitely without taking cognizance of the fact that such will inflict serious pain on the already burdened Nigerian citizens.


“I don’t support the closure because it is illegal, immoral and economically senseless. It cannot be defended under the ECOWAS Protocol on Free Movement of Persons and Goods. Punishing millions of community citizens for the offense of a few smugglers is immoral.
