See why President Buhari did not speak on Lekki shootings
There has been criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari after his speech on Thursday, October 22nd.
Many Nigerians have expressed disappointment as to why the President did not address the shooting at Lekki toll gate.
Femi Adesina who is the Special Adviser on Media and publicity to President Buhari has explained the reason for not addressing the shootings in his speech.
Adesina explained why the President did not address the shooting in an interview on Channels TV’s ‘Politics Today’.
He said; “The Defence Headquarters issued a statement to say that it was investigating the matter. Lagos State Governor has also set up a probe panel to investigate what really happened.
“So, the President couldn’t have said anything because it would be premature and presumptuous while investigation is ongoing. It is after investigation has been concluded that he can speak on the matter.”
