If Doing This Amounts To Hatred In Your Imagination … So Be It! BY AGBA JALINGO

In Breaking News, Civic Space, Opinion

Section 22, 1999 Constitution says:

“The press, radio, television and other agencies of the mass media shall at all times be free to uphold the fundamental objectives contained in this Chapter and uphold the responsibility and accountability of the government to the people.”

Section 39:

  1.  Every person shall be entitled to freedom of expression, including the freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference.
  2. Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (1) of this section, every person shall be entitled to own, establish and operate any medium for the dissemination of information ideas and opinions … … …”

If holding the government accountable still sounds like hatred in your ears, you don’t only suffer from an acute shortage of comprehension syndrome, you need an urgent check to see whether you are a democrat or not.

Yours sincerely.
