Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina has said that majority of the people planning and carrying out protests against the present administration are still in “election mode”.
He said this during an interview on Lagos Talks FM where he was a guest with entertainer, Dede Mabiaku.
Adesina added that another group of people in the set of the protesters are permanent critics. Adesina said that those who supported the present administration during the run up to the 2015 election are impatient, adding that “this is a 48-month mandate, and you must give an opportunity for the president that has been elected to pace himself and do the work that he’s elected to do”.
While Adesina was making his point about those still in “election mode”, he was interrupted by Dede, and Adesina said “will you keep quiet and let me talk?”
Dede keep quiet and when he was asked to speak, he refused, saying that Adesina had the audacity to ask him to “shut up”, then he walked out. Dede also said he will not have sycophants talk to him anyhow because they work in government.
According to Femi Adesina, if you’re calling for a protest against the current administration, you’re still in “Election Mode”.
