Nigerians kick Femi Adesina over ‘Buhari’s style’ comment

Nigerians on Thursday trooped to social media to attack Femi Adesina, special adviser on media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The attack was stirred by Adesina’s explanation of why President Buhari is not physically addressing Nigerians on the issue of coronavirus (COVID-19) on a daily basis.

Asked why the President did not brief Nigerians as it was done in other countries, Adesina told Channels TV, “It’s a matter of style”.

“The style that A adopts may not be the one that B adopts, and there is no style that you can call ‘this style’ for everybody. So, everybody is at liberty to adopt a style that suits him,” Adesina added.

Below are some of the reactions of Nigerians on Twitter:

However, as of the time of writing this report, over 12,000 tweets were demanding the whereabouts of the President of Nigeria.
