President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on media and publicity, Femi Adesina had come under serious criticisms following an interview with Channels TV this morning.
According to Adesina, during the interview with Maupe Ogun on Sunrise daily, he spoke on Leah Sharibu, Kemi Adeosun’s alleged certificate forgery scandal amongst many other National issues.
On when says when Leah Sharibu, the kidnapped Dapchi girl, left behind because of her faith will be rescued, Adesina said ‘only God knows’.
Yesterday, online newspaper, TheCable had released a recent photo and an audio voice recording of Sharibu, appealing to President Buhari to rescue her.
Adesina was also asked to give a time-frame for Sharibu’s rescue, but here’s what he said:
“For how much longer, I think that question can only be answered by God. I believe that God is interested in that young girl and will ensure that she is preserved.”
“I think when that clip that we have is verified, at least one will be sure that it’s her and when that is determined, we should all be glad that she is alive.
“When will she return? By the grace of God, the government is working on it and we believe she will be back.”
Nigerians are not pleased with Adesina’s response and have taken to social media to vent. Here are a few of their reactions.
Dear sir, @MBuhari, do you really send the likes of Femi Adesina to speak on your behalf? Are you really aware of the damage from their use of words or you are just interested in cartoons?
