Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has stated that the #RevolutionNow protests embarked upon by some Nigerians is irritating.

He made this known during a recent interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme earlier today.

Femi Adesina said during the interview;

“Well, was it really a protest? By my estimation, it just seemed like a child’s play because protests by their very nature are spontaneous things, mass things. These are just a sprinkle of people trying to be funny. As far as I am concerned, it is nothing to worry about.

“A revolution is always a mass thing, not a sprinkle of young boys and girls you saw yesterday in different parts of the country. I think it was just a funny thing to call it a revolution protest.”


When asked if it was right for the Presidency to talk down on young Nigerians for protesting, Adesina insisted that the protests were nothing but an irritation and he had a right to his opinion. He said;

“In a country of 200 million people and if you see a sprinkle of people saying they are doing a revolution, it was a child’s play.”

When asked if the seriousness of a protest is determined only by size, Adesina added;

“Well, it will always matter because if you said it was a revolution, revolutions by definition are quite well known.

“Revolution is something that turns the normal order. What happened yesterday, would you call it a revolution? It was just an irritation, just an irritation and some people want to cause irritation in the country and what I will say is when things boil over, they boil over because you continue to heat them.

“When you see pockets of heating up in the country, eventually they culminate in a boiling over. So, Nigerians need to know that the country we get is what we use our hands to build.”

I really don't expect this from Mr Femi Adeshina as his comment could spell re-mobilization and reinforcement of the said protest. You don't kill a burning charcoal by fanning it.
