Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Centre, Lagos, has blasted the Presidency over its response to calls for restructuring.
Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, had said:
“The Presidency responds to the recurring threats to the corporate existence of the country with factions giving specific timelines for the President to do one thing or another or else, in their language, ‘the nation will break up.’
“This is to warn that such unpatriotic outbursts are both unhelpful and unwarranted as this government will not succumb to threats and take any decision out of pressure at a time when the nation’s full attention is needed to deal with the security challenges facing it at a time of the COVID-19 health crisis.”
Responding to the comment, Adeyemi tweeted, “When did it become a threat for citizens to express opinions, even if strong, about the structuring or restructuring of their country? Effective leaders listen.”
