Twitter buzzing as Nigerians mock Presidential Spokesman Femi Adesina over “Mental & Chronological Age” Tweets



Femi Adesina KSAWhen it comes to social media, people have “no chill”!
Presidential spokesperson Femi Adesina learned this lesson the hard way today and he became a trending topic on Twitter due to his comments on “Mental & Chronological Age”.

What He Said
via Guardian
His words: “Talking of age, there is a saying that ‘age does not matter’. We must rather talk of the mental age rather than the chronological age. It is not the chronological age that matters…. ”

“God himself is ageless, so you can’t be talking of whether someone is old or not. Talking about women, yes, three women in this list, 15 yet to come, if all the 15 are now women, what would you have to say? Just be sure that the President is mindful of fair representation in the country and he will do what is needful.”

The quotes made their way to Twitter and rather than letting it go, he defended his comments, thus sparking the online ambush

      If he truly paid attention in class who would realize that he just shot himself with two bullets.

      If MA = 10 and CA = 1 then one’s iq would be 1000.

      If MA = 1 and CA = 10 then one’s iq would be 10.

      So as one gets older, their iq decreases. Or no be so? If i am wring biko correct me.

      However iq is very absent in the senate so i am not aure how dem go take screen mijistera sef judging from the circus of prior ministeral screening.

    So now which one is he using now….? His mental age or chronological age? Nigerians always good at playing the age game. When they want respect they claim old age (chronological age) when they want favour or political or government position they claim youth, reduce their age (mental age).
