Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity has disclosed that many Nigerians are not bothered about the re-arrest of Omoyele Sowore, Human Rights Activist and Publisher of Sahara Reporters.
He made this disclosure in an interview with popular news agency, Channels TV.
According to Buhari’s aide, the ruckus surrounding Sowore’s arrest is coming from a minority group.
“I don’t particularly agree with you when you say a lot of Nigerians are not happy. You know that all this noise has been coming from less than 100,000 Nigerians. And the noise will be so loud that you think it is the whole country. It is a country of 198 million people. When just 100,000 are making noise in the social and traditional media, you would think the whole country is in an uproar.”
“There are millions and millions of people who are not bothered. There are millions of people who know what the issues are. So, you cannot just seek the opinion of a local minority and then conclude that the country is in an uproar.”
