Femi Adesina, Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, has said Nigerians are ignorant of President Muhammadu Buhari’s true identity.
Adesina, in this week’s edition of ‘Fridays With Femi’ tiled, ‘HOUNDING THE PRESIDENT. WILL THEY EVER LEARN?’ said Buhari is focused in his approach to issues, particularly by ignoring irrelevant comments from haters.
The presidential aide, who lamented the opinion of some Nigerians regarding Buhari’s health status, said his principal’s life is in the hand of the Almighty God.
“Some Nigerians have made it a pastime to pester and attempt to browbeat the President. I laugh. They don’t know the person they are dealing with. A cool customer. Never flustered, harried or disconcerted.
“He simply focuses on what he is doing, ignoring the noise of the market. Kick like a dying horse, shout yourselves hoarse, curse, murmur like a ghost, hiss like a snake, President Buhari keeps his eyes on the ball”, he said.
Adesina urged Nigerians to learn from Buhari’s approach to issues, stressing that it is important to concentrate on what matters.
He wondered why his haters have failed to hold the olive branch amid unsuccessful claims since the inception of Buhari’s administration in 2015.
“Each time they come, they get beaten. Why don’t they learn their lessons, and admit that the life and times of this President, like that of every man, is in the hands of God? Why do the heathens rage, and the people imagine vain things?”, he added.
According to him, those who think they make life difficult for Buhari when they hound him, should understand that “no leaf falls from the tree without the permission of God,”
