Nigerians bash Femi Adesina for calling #RevolutionNow protests “an irritation”


The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has incurred the wrath of netizens after describing the #RevolutionNow protests as an “irritation” and a “distraction”.

The presidential aide spoke as a guest on Sunrise Daily, a popular Channels Television programme on Thursday morning.

He said the action of the protesters, who claim to be demanding better governance, was nothing more than an attempt to cause ” irritation ” in the country.

Adesina said that the protests were unwarranted and capable of heating up the country.
