Femi Adesina and his principal, President Buhari
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said President Muhammadu Buhari‘s reason for not visiting troubled states in the country is because he was being systematic and methodical.
The presidential spokesman said this in a video posted on his official Facebook page.
Recall that after much criticism from Nigerians, President Buhari announced that it’ll be visiting Yobe, Taraba, Benue, Zamfara, and Rivers states, where several killings have taken place since the start of 2018.
Adesina, in the video, said if the resident have visited earlier, it would have amounted to “window dressing.”
‘The president took his time to assess the insecurities in the states’, Adesina said, ‘and methodically got to the root of the problems.’
‘Nigerians need to understand their leaders’, Adesina added. “If they don’t respond the way we expect them to, it does not mean they are insensitive.”
