The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said ‘some people’ are not encouraging the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) in his efforts to secure Nigeria, revive the economy, and fight insecurity.
Adesina also accused the Nigerian media of paying less attention to the achievements of Buhari, particularly those bordering on wins against insecurity.
Adesina made the allegations in an article titled, ‘The story that didn’t hug the headlines’, and shared on his official Facebook page on Thursday.
He noted that rather than showcase Buhari’s achievements on same topic, his traducers prefer to critise him openly and look away when he deserves some credits.
Making reference to the Global Terrorism Index 2022 report released last week by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) where Nigeria recorded the second-biggest reduction in deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa, Adesina noted that both the Nigerian media and Buhari’s critic failed to give the achievements deserving coverage and mention respectively.
Adesina noted that despite gains being recorded in some critical sectors, “the pessimists have not changed their tongues, nor their minds”.
“When you exhibit loud silence about positive developments in your country, and scream blue murder when there are reversals, you are a hypocrite, a hater of your country, and a hater of all that is good. Sad, dolorous, mournful,” he wrote.
