Femi Adesina

Twitter Nigeria called out Presidential aide, Femi Adesina for praising President Muhammadu Buhari’s ‘fatherly role’ and ‘calm disposition’ during and after the #EndSARS protests, which, according to him, prevented the country from degenerating into a state of anarchy.

In his recently published article titled “We Have Not Many Fathers”, Adesina had said, “If President Buhari hadn’t exercised the restraint and tolerance of a Father at a time that even hitherto respected people instigated the protests to carry on (and they promptly went underground when anarchy ensued), we would have been talking of something else in this country.”

The statement was the center of debate by mid-day on Friday.
