Your Freedom Of Speech Has Boundaries — Presidency Warns Nigerians

Femi Adesina and Buhari

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has cautioned people calling for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Adesina said those calling for Buhari’s resignation due to the issue of insecurity in Nigeria were only exercising their freedom of speech, but such expression has its limitations.

He stated this while speaking on Channels TV’s Politics Today, on Wednesday night.

“Under a democracy, people have freedom of speech. You have freedom of speech although that freedom also has boundaries.

“There is no freedom that does not have boundaries. The freedom that does not have boundaries will even injure the person who is utilising that freedom.

“So, if anybody says that kind of thing under a democracy, it is allowed but when it is bent on causing chaos, that person may be asked to come and answer certain questions”, he said.
