Femi Adesina blinded by perks of office- Idris Usman
A human rights activist Idris Usman has taken Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina to the cleaners for declaring his readiness to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019. In a statement issued in Abuja Idris insisted that Adesina was being insincere, stressing that the Buhari administration is the worst performing in the history of the nation.
Below is the full statement:
“It is only someone that is mentally impaired that will say he will vote for President Buhari over and over again. It is quite sad that Femi Adesina of just yesterday who stood for justice, competence in leadership and someone who has been at the forefront of defending the values of democracy has become this person who now has set himself up to be ridiculed. It is quite sad that Femi Adesina would open his mouth to make this kind of comment at this critical time that one does need a soothsayer to see that things have never been worse than they are presently. Nigeria as a country has never been this disunited, we as a people have never been this distrustful, Nigerians as a collective people have never been this unsafe and insecure. There’s not a single day that goes by that two or more Nigerians do not wake up to mourn a father, mother, son, daughter or a relative that was gunned down overnight or better still hacked to pieces by the dreaded Fulani herdsmen. And here we have the likes of Femi Adesina open his mouth to say he will vote for Buhari again and again and also call names of people who are speaking the truth.
“It’s quite unfortunate to say the least the glaring injustices people can choose to become blind to when they have tasted benefits of Political office, Femi Adesina is a perfect example and there are so many more like him too who seem to be speaking the truth now but in their heart of hearts are just waiting for an opportunity to nab a Political office and then begin to act mentally.
“Nigeria as it is doesn’t need a soothsayer to realise that the country is not working and that the country is being run aground, we do not even know where we are currently headed as a country and it is only a sick person who is in denial and living in a Fools paradise that would say everything is alright and that is exactly what Femi Adesina represents. My questions for Mr Femi Adesina are as follows:
1) Those people that are being killed daily are they not reason enough to vote out a President like Muhammadu Buhari?
2) The hunger and desperation in the land is it not reason enough? Does he not know anyone that is being affected? Has he extended the loot of the villa so far down the line that everyone around him is living in contentment and have become immune to the abject hunger and lack?
3) Take an objective look at Nigeria today and compare with Nigeria before the current government of the APC and answer this, how well has Muhammadu Buhari united this country or better still how farther apart have we all grown to become?
These are the 3 questions l have for Femi Adesina and he has 7 days to come up with an honest response so as to enlighten us and if not it would be confirmed that indeed even without going for psychiatric evaluation, he has truly lost it.”
