Nigerians Should be Thankful Bombings don’t Occur Daily- Femi Adesina

Mr. Femi Adesina, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Media Aide, has told Nigerians to be grateful that bombings no longer happen on a daily basis.

Adesina said this while responding to questions on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics. Adesina said that in the past, 6 different bombs would go off in one day, but with the comin of Buhari’s leadership, that has be curtailed.

He said this in response to concerns raised by Nigerians over the rise of insecurity in the country in recent weeks. In the last three days alone, five different killings and abductions were carried out in th country.

When asked if security had improved, he said, “Yes, there are times, a week, two weeks even a month that you don’t have all these things happening. There was a time in the immediate past when they happened daily several times. You talked of one bombing within three or four days. There was a time in this country when bombs went off like firecrackers every day.”

“There could be five, six bombings in one day. Now, you can have two, three months with no single case of bombing. Let’s be thankful for small mercies. Any mercies we receive, let’s be thankful for it and let’s not dwell on negatives alone.”

“Life is taking the rough and smooth together. So, sometimes we see when things go on for days, for weeks with no negative developments, let us emphasise those ones… We have challenges, but these are not the constants in the country.”
