A popular rights activist in Delta State, Comrade Israel Joe, on Thursday reacted to the warning by the Nigeria Police that the use of ‘No Gree For Anybody’, adopted by some Nigerians as the 2024 slogan was capable of instigating crisis in the country.

The slogan, which simply means ‘do not tolerate any form of nonsense from anybody’ or ‘do not allow yourself to be bullied by anyone’, recently gained popularity among Nigerians, especially on the social media.

The Police Spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, who addressed newsmen, said intelligence reports show that the catchphrase was capable of plunging the country into crisis of monumental proportion.

The Force PRO noted that, although the slogan is seen as ‘normal talk’, those in the security community view it as a ‘dangerous’ slogan.

“The new slogan for 2024, for young people is ‘No dey gree for anybody’.

“We have been informed from our intelligence that this is coming from the retributionary sector that might likely cause problem across the country.

“’No dey gree for anybody’ is being seen as just normal talk. In the security community, we have seen it as a very dangerous slogan that can trigger crises,” he said.

Reacting, Joe in a statenemt made available to Oasis Magazine, said: “I heard the FPRO ACP Adejobi Olumuyiwa of Nigeria Police Force warning Nigerians not to use the slogan bla bla bla. I have used it and I want them to come arrest me.”

Adding: “Let’s see the charge that would be used when we get to court. The Nigeria Police cannot and has no right to impede on the fundamental right to freedom of expression as guaranteed and enshrined in chapter 4, Section 39 of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended.”

He continued: “I think the Police should rather advise the politicians who steal away the future of the youths in millions and billions day in day out.

“We shall contest it in court should the police arrest anyone because of this statement that has done no harm rather than instilling the courage to work harder to success this year, as metamorphorically expressed in the phrase “Nor gree for anybody this year”.”

“I’m Comr Israel Joe and I nor go gree for anybody this year,” he concluded.
