Those Protesting Against the Present Administration are either Impatient, Permanent Critics or still in “Election Mode” – Femi Adesina | WATCH



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.

    Is this man crazy? So we should wait for hunger to finish us before we start protesting the gross incompetence of your ilk? This has gone past any election. We demand good leadership. It is our right. Are you waiting for 2019 before we start seeing any of your promised ‘change’? Is this man even living in Nigeria at all? Food prices have skyrocketed, people are still being bombed massively by BH and killed by the herdsmen, Fashola minister of darkness is nowhere to be seen, universities are on strike, people are being killed daily in our hospitals because there’s no ‘oxygen’! Its only in Nigeria you hear of things like this. How long is it going to take before we experience any form of change? I am just tired of this country!

      You are not the only one. Everything don tire me.

      This is a special assistant to the supposed most powerful man in Nigeria and yet no decorum. Dede, you did well but next time dont interrupt. However Femi acted like a typical high positioned government official – primitive, entitled, and classless. My standards for them are high but expectations, very low.

      BN it is ‘kept’ not ‘keep’. Recession in the English language at BN or what?

      Femi, this government will eventually come to an end. Remember the way you treat people while there oh because it will be the same people you will encounter when you dont have a job.

      Nigerians are fed up. Lets rise and make Nigeria GREAT!!

      That proverb by Femi is so apt. All of them in Aso Rock are sleeping and facing the same direction. What a foolish man. This is what happens when incompetent people lead. Adesina former editor of a third rate newspaper mtscheeeew. Idiots managing the Presidency.

      God punish Femi Adesina, bring suffering upon him and his family so he can be more compassionate. Chai, these people are too wicked. Even if you don’t know the perfect solution, show some empathy.
      How can these officials be so heartless and never take responsibilities. Oh because the suffering is not affecting them and their family. Therefore, the other people should just suffer and die.

      God help me. I don’t know if I should call thunder to fire you from above. God should cut your tongue for all your lies. Leave us alone. Retreat to your ivory tower and never interact with us again.

    Femi Adesina is doing his work as the image maker of this confused administration…. that’s why I don’t want to bash or insult him….this is what pays his bills otherwise he will lose his job…. I rather FEEL pity for him for deep in his Christian heart he knows the TRUTH but incapacitated to do it….posterity will judge our works…. PURE HYPOCRISY.

      No, he has a choice, everyone has a choice. Sometimes those choices are hard but we always have a choice.
      An American judge lost a job for not agreeing with Donald Trump’s directives, that is a person of character, of integrity.
      Fear of job loss is not an excuse we should making for this people, you are either for or against. There is NO fence.
      Femi is as complicit as the people he is working with, shikena

      Gbam!!! Thank you.

      I was impressed by her but at the same time, she knew she would be out of a job in a week. Everything is political.

      In this present economic climate no one wants to find him or herself without a job. Also, Femi Adesins enjoys the little power he has gathered. Power is intoxicating. Who can blame him.

      Logical idea but where are the youths? Thesame ones that are fighting over tribe and religion. Thesame youths that have been consumed by Ponzi schemes like MMM, will turn to corrupt politician if they have access to power and wealth that comes with a political office. Youths have eaten from the plates of their fathers and it is inevitable to show similar character when they get to the top. Are the youths better off than the old ones we continously assign blames to?

    Can this people shut up already. It will be two years in May since u people got elected and ya’ll can’t point out a single thing you have done. We know change can’t happen overnight or rather two years is to short a time to experience complete change , but there isn’t a single clue or sign that there would even be improvement.
    Truth is u people were never ready for power and u are still probably in ur ” I can’t believe we won mood.
    please how did this man get this job.. how lord how

  9. When you are always talking on behalf of the president, you can just assume to be one and act up, telling the masses rep to shut up, he truly lacks diplomacy

    Criticizing President Buhari’s administration does not mean those who do so don’t like the man Mohammodu Buhari personally. That’s what Democracy is all about. What people generally despise in him are some of the stupid, ugly and silly programs/ policies some members of his administration was proposing.. But when people criticize such policies , they have been successful in forcing the government to change course. Such members of his administration would then turn arround and lie about it claiming they were misquoted by the media. If any of such agendas was adopted, Life would have been more difficult for all Nigerians in general.
