COVID-19: Nigerians Attack Femi Adesina Over ‘Buhari’s Style’ Comment


Nigerians have expressed their disappointment at Femi Adesina, Presidential Spokesman over his reason why President Muhammadu Buhari has not been addressing Nigerians on the COVID-19 virus pandemic affecting the country.

Adesina, in an interview with Channels Television on Thursday, stated that the President’s inability to address Nigerians on a daily basis on the spread of the pandemic in the country is a matter of ‘Style’.

The media aide said: “It’s a matter of Style. If you go back to school, you’ll remember in Stylistics class, we were told that style is Idiosyncratic which means it differs from person to person.

“The Style that ‘A’ adopts may not be the one that ‘B’ adopts. There is a style that you can call ‘THE STYLE’ for everybody. So, everybody is at liberty to adopt a style that suits him.

“The Style our president has adopted is to set up a presidential task force headed by the secretary to the government of the federation, which briefs regularly…The health minister who briefs…the minister of state health who also briefs…you have the NCDC national centre for disease control, they brief….you have that chain, so there is no lack of Information.”

Immediately after the interview, Nigerians took to social media to attack Adesina over the insensitive statement amid the outbreak of the pandemic.

Below are some of the reactions of Nigerians captured on Twitter:
