A Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has said Nigerians will die of boredom if they don’t start controversies.
He said this while reacting to news that President Buhari instructed the governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to come up with a consensus candidate ahead of the party’s presidential primary election.
In an article titled “Visit to Spain: Let’s Buga for Mr President”, Adesina said the president did not discuss the issue of zoning or consensus with the governors.
He blamed Nigerians for spreading such news and said that most will die of boredom if they don’t wail.
He wrote: “No word about zoning, consensus, or imposition of candidate. He just charged them to let their plans converge, so that the party would put its best foot forward. Shortly after the meeting, we headed for the airport.
“A short time into the about five hours flight, I went on social media, to see that all hell had broken loose. Trust some Nigerians. When there’s no controversy, they simply create one. They will die of boredom if they don’t have something to wail or ululate about.
