Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, has said Nigeria is a sovereign nation therefore not answerable to the US, UK or EU regarding cases of human rights abuses.
Adesina siad this when he spoke as a guest on Channels TV on Wednesday night, December 11th.
When asked to react to comments from the EU, UK and the US on the invasion of the Federal High Court Abuja by men of the Department of State Services who arrested the publisher and convener of the Revolution Now protest, Omoyele Sowore, Adesina replied
“We are not answerable to the US, the UK or the EU. We are Nigeria, a sovereign country. Those countries and entities have issues of their own. Let them deal with their issues. Let Nigeria also deal with her internal issues. We are not answerable to them.
He went on to speak about Wole Soyinka's criticisms against the regime of the President, stating that the Nobel laureate was free to express his opinion.
“We respect Prof. Soyinka. You don’t have too many of them in the country or even on the continent. He is an avatar and he is well respected but his opinion will remain his opinion. It will be considered and if there are things to act on, we will act on them,” he said.
When asked to comment on the recent attack on his senior colleague, Garba Shehu by the first lady, Aisha Buhari, Adesina said he will not be able to comment as he is not the person that was attacked by the first lady. He went on to add that the President's family is off limits except the President directs him speak on the issue.

Yes stupid man, you can't arrest Soyinka because he's a known known. When other leadership is in power and  uses  the same  nasty abuse against your relative, you would want these countries  you're now berating to intervene. Fighting  financial corruption  whilst abusing the constitution is as bad as the corruption itself. In fact  constitutional infringement is a far worst crime than financial crimes because the  the former  hinges on our  liberty, freedom and  dignity as  a nation and human beings. The very  financial corruption is rooted in the Human Right abuses that  precedes its occurrence . So in short, you're not only talking  rubbish, but insulting every  progressive Nigerian . You should be ashamed of your very existence , you silly goat.

What do you expect from a stupid Yoruba man? They’ll sell their tribe to be at the top. Very useless tribe of cowards and traitors. From a Yoruba man.
