Femi Adesina responded to those calling for a protest against Buhari’s administration
– He described them as people who are pained Jonathan lost the presidential election
The presidency has reacted to plans to organise a nationwide protest led by 2Baba Idibia to complain about the situation of things in the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
The veteran musician had promised to be part of a protest due to the economic situation in the country and this has received support from Nigerians and some musicians.
However, Mr Femi Adesina who is the special adviser to the president on media and publicity spoke on Talk 91.3fm in Lagos describing those who are planning the protest are people who supported Goodluck Jonathan’s government and are still pained that he lost.
He said: “This is a country of about 180 million people. It is impossible for 180 million people to think the same way. Yoruba has a saying that is you all sleep and put your head in the same direction, then you are all foolish because you would be breathing in one another’s mouth and lungs. Dont forget the last election and how it went. Somebody scored 12.5 million votes, another scored about 15 million votes. There are some people who are still in that election mode.
”They have not gotten out of it and till today, they are still living and “rheumatisizing” about the past. What they don’t know is that that past is gone and gone forever. Majority of those calling for the protest are still in election mode. Majority of them are people that have resolved not to see anything good in this administration simply because the man they wanted lost at the polls.”
