Femi Adesina accuses Buhari critics of using ‘their mouths to divide’ Nigeria



Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has slammed those he referred to as armchair critics of the President who “use their mouths to divide the country.”

Adesina who also absolved Buhari from blame following escalating cases of insecurity and hardship in the country, said the President has done more to unite Nigeria than any other leader in the history of the nation.

Though the presidential aide did not address his comments to any particular individual, but coming after Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah in his Easter message on Sunday criticised Buhari for dividing the country with his leadership style, Adesina took to his Twitter handle on Monday to say those who criticise Buhari are the same ones dividing the country with their comments.

In the post, the presidential spokesman said it was surprising that those who were guilty of creating “division with mouths in Nigeria are the ones accusing the President of the same crime they committed.”

“Those who divided Nigeria with their mouths, with evil, unguarded speaking, are the ones now accusing President Buhari. How sad! Their wicked intentions shall not come to pass,” Adesina wrote.
