VIDEO: You Have no Right to Order President Buhari Around-Adesina
Following his outrageous comments on national radio, where he rebuked a participant who called in, from requesting a presidential media conference, something president Muhammadu Buhari has not done since the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic, Presidential Spokesman, Femi Adesina has come under heavy criticism from social media users.
The participant, who identified himself as Mr Ibikunle, during a call-in session on a live programme on Nigeria Info FM, called on Mr Adesina to “encourage Mr President (Buhari) to come out and speak to us (Nigerians)” through a press chat with the president.
In his reaction, Mr Adesina criticised the caller.
“I just want to encourage Mr Ibikunle not to continue to sound like a broken record,” Mr Adesina said.
The spokesperson, in a rather mimicry tone, rebuked any brewing intention to demand another address from the president since he has addressed the nation thrice after serious clamour by Nigerians across social platforms in the last two months.
“When this COVID thing began, ‘president should talk to us, the president should talk to us,’ he has had three national broadcasts within a month, what else do they want? What else do they want?
“People think because either you elected a president or you didn’t elect him, you must lead your president by the nose. It doesn’t happen.
“Because you elected a man then you begin to order him around. The president would do whatever is good for the country any given time,” Mr Adesina said in a one minute forty-five seconds video currently among the top twenty trends in Nigeria.
