The Senior Special Adviser to the President, Mr. Femi Adesina has reiterated that Buhari played the role of a ‘father’ in his handling of the #EndSARS protests and the mishap that came with them.
Adesina who is Buhari’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity hinted that had his superior not acted the way he did, there would have been a different topic of discussion in the country at the moment.
Adesina wrote on his website, http://www.femiadesina.com: “All through the EndSARS protest and the riots, mayhem and looting that followed, President Buhari acted like a father. And though we have millions of instructors in this country, we have not many fathers. President Buhari is one.
“The President is by no means a soft man. We remember the man of iron and steel that ruled with iron fist between January 1984 and August 1985, with his kindred spirit, Babatunde Idiagbon. They attempted to knock sense into our heads as Nigerians, but were eventually toppled by people who had less patience for discipline.”
