The Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission(NHRC),Professor Chidi Odinkalu has disclosed that the rights commission reviewed the controversial advert placed in major national newspapers in the country by Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State with a verdict that the material amounted to “hate speech.”

According to Odinkalu, though the commission may not immediately arrest and prosecute Fayose because of the immunity he currently enjoys as a sitting governor, NHRC might recommend him for appropriate sanctions once he leaves office.

Professor Chidi Odinkalu, who addressed journalists at at a stakeholders’ roundtable organised by the NHRC for civil society groups, mainstream and social media partners in Abuja, yesterday, decried the death wish publication by the advertiser, saying it offended public decency and violated all known norms of decorum.Odinkalu said the governor, who is a member of the National Council of States, which makes decisions for the security of the country, should have exhibited caution and statesmanship in sending out the message.

The NHRC chairman noted that the governor went too far in his controversial message not minding that even the children of the former Northern leaders he showed to have died in office might feel bad while the same party also expected them to cast their votes for them in the forthcoming elections.

In a related development, the commission also took up issue with the Parish Priest of Adoration Ground, Rev Father Ejike Mbaka, for using his pulpit to canvass support for and against President Goodluck Jonathan and Gen. Muhammadu Buhari. Odinkalu said Mbaka breached the Electoral Act by first prophesying to the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, last November that Jonathan would win the 2015 election and later predicting during his New Year day preaching that Jonathan should resign and leave the stage for Buhari for not doing enough.
