The Federal Government has admonished Nigerians to refrain from making derogatory and seditious remarks that cast the government in bad light and incite Nigerians against it.

The admonition was contained in a statement from Minister of State for Defence, Bello Matawalle, on Friday.

In the statement by Mr Henshaw Ogubike, the ministry’s Director of Information and Public Relations, said President Bola Tinubu has the capacity, political will and intelligence to address the security crisis that pervades the nation.

He said the warning was necessitated by the unguarded utterances coming from some quarters of the country due to the security challenges in the country.

“Such comments are incitive and destructive and can exacerbate tensions and lead to violence in our beloved nation,” he said.

The minister also pointed out the various policies the government had put in place to reposition and hasten the growth of the nation’s economy as well as to secure the lives, liberty and property of the citizenry.

He said that the president has given priority to the safety of citizens by equipping the Nigerian military to function optimally, while the service chiefs have also been charged with rebuilding the capacity of the security services.

“Just recently, the president approved the creation of a committee that included the state governors and federal representatives that will explore, among other things, the possibility of establishing state police that will help in checking crimes,” he added
