“RevolutionNow” Protesters Are Irritating & Childish - Femi Adesina.

Pres. Buhari.

It is very tragic how low the Presidency has descended in her bid to silence opinions of people who disagree with the style of leadership we are having right now, especially with the she handle the issue of protests, with her saying that the #RevolutionNow protests that held in different parts of the state on Wednesday were a mere child’s play and an irritation.


According to the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, who appeared on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Thursday, the protests were carried out by only a few youths out of the 200 million Nigerians in the country.

Femi Adesina said, “Well, was it really a protest? By my estimation, it just seemed like a child’s play because protests by their very nature are spontaneous things, mass things. These are just a sprinkle of people trying to be funny. As far as I am concerned, it is nothing to worry about.

“A revolution is always a mass thing, not a sprinkle of young boys and girls you saw yesterday in different parts of the country. I think it was just a funny thing to call it a revolution protest.”

When asked if it was right for the Presidency to talk down on young Nigerians for protesting, Adesina remained adamant, insisting that the protests were nothing but irritation and he had a right to his opinion.

“In a country of 200 million people and if you see a sprinkle of people saying they are doing a revolution, it was a child’s play,” he said.

When asked if the government determines the seriousness of a protest only by its size, Adesina responded, “Well, it will always matter because if you said it was a revolution, revolutions by definition are quite well known.
