In the wake of Nigerian Army’s plan to monitor social media activities, placid Jonathan reminds Nigerians of ‘freedom enjoyed’ under his watch

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday took a swipe at the move by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to curb hate speech.

The ex-leader shared a picture of a quote he made on Facebook in 2014.

The post read in part, “I am the most abused and insulted President in the world but when I leave office, you will all remember me for the total ‘freedom’ you enjoyed under me.”

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo had said last week that thenceforth, the Federal Government would treat hate speech as terrorism, while the military said it would be monitoring comments on social media to tackle anti-government and anti-security views. Jonathan’s re-post had elicited 3,190 comments from his over two million followers as of 8pm.
