The Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina has revealed why Nigerians should be grateful to President Buhari’s administration especially as regards insecurity.
Mr Femi Adesina said that there was a time in the country when bombs, whether suicide or otherwise do go off at least five times daily but it that has not been the case recently under President Buhari’s second tenure.
He revealed that nowadays, the county has been witnessing fewer bombings and there could be no form of bombing in the country for 2-3 months.
Consequently, the Presidential aide called on Nigerians to be grateful for the “little mercies” which they have been receiving. He also called on Nigerians to focus on the positives side of things instead of the negatives.
Femi Adesina also added that the Buhari-led administration remains credible to the people.
He made these revelations while speaking on Sunday Politics – a programme on Channels TV recently.
Yes, there are times, a week, two weeks even a month that you don’t have all these things happening. There was a time in the immediate past when they happened daily several times. You talked of one bombing within three or four days. There was a time in this country when bombs went off like firecrackers every day.
There could be five, six bombings in one day. Now, you can have two, three months with no single case of bombing. Let’s be thankful for small mercies. Any mercies we receive, let’s be thankful for it and let’s not dwell on negatives alone.
Life is taking the rough and smooth together. So, sometimes we see when things go on for days, for weeks with no negative developments, let us emphasise those ones… We have challenges, but these are not the constants in the country.
