One of the biggest hypocrites of this administration is the spokesman of the president, Mr. Femi Adesina. Mr. Adesina epitomizes the real problem of desperate individuals who wants to keep their job around power in Nigeria, they turn sycophantic.
In the case of Femi Adesina, quickly losing his main job to Garba Shehu, the other spokesman to the president, he seeks relevance in trying his best to impress the administration by saying things that would outrage those perceived to be critics of the administration without making much sense as long as it would be headline. It’s survival. Survival matters to him now more than anything.
The cabal seem to favor Garba Shehu, the man from the North. He is the one releasing most of the important press releases. Mr. Femi Adesina has been turned to a poster boy who is kept close to give the presidency semblance of diversity.
So who does Femi Adesina attack to make himself relevant? Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), who lost a member to Boko Haram, beheaded for his faith. Boko Haram have deliberately targeted Christians and Christian communities in their quest to create an utopian Islamic State. In the past three months Boko Haram have released videos executing people because they are Christians. Has President Muhammadu Buhari come out to address the nation, one on one. Has he organized any press conference or interviews to talk to the people than Garba Shehu releasing press releases on social media?
If you watch CNN, Aljazeera, BBC, CGTN and all the major international media organizations, you will see presidents talking to their people, not Buhari. Buhari hides behind the wall of Aso Rock Villa band treat Nigerians with disdain. People are killed everyday by Boko Haram, bandits, Fulani herdsmen and what have you, do you hear from Buhari?
Mr. Femi Adesina should look at the architect of Buhari security apparatuses. It is almost headed by Muslims from the North in a country like Nigeria. Shouldn’t CAN be worried?
I have never seen Mr. Adesina write anything unfavorable on MIYETTI ALLAH. Miyetti Allah can say whatever and get away with it. The presidency never respond back. Severally Miyetti Allah have issued statements that directly linked them in orchestrating some of the mass murder in the Middle Belt. Where was Femi Adesina all the time it happens? Is it not Femi Adesina that told us in the Middle Belt that wouldn’t it be better if we give our land than die and be buried in it?
Mr. Femi Adesina has lost all his credibility to talk about CAN or any organization or individuals who is critical of this incompetence this administration has become. I will only advise him to do his job with common sense. There is life after government.
