Former media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr Reno Omokri, has berated President Muhammadu Burari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media, Femi Adesina, for being economical with the truth in his recent interview with Channels Television.
Omokri in a statement, Monday, said “I watched Femi Adesina’s interview on Channels Television on January 26, 2020, and I felt sorry, very sorry for Buhari.
First, his own wife, Aisha Buhari, exposed one of his spokesmen, Garba Shehu, as one economic with the truth, and agent of the cabal, whose loyalty to her husband is directed by what he would gain financially.
“And now, the other spokesman, Femi Adesina, has shown himself to be not just economic with the truth, but an unintelligent one at that.
“During the Channels TV interview, Femi Adesina upbraided Nigerians for complaining about the spate of insecurity in Nigeria. He then went on to say that ‘Nigerians should be thankful that bombing has reduced.’’
Continuing, the misguided Adesina said: “It is not as bad as you make it seem..because we know what the situation was as of 2015 and we know what it is today despite the reversals in security, it is still not as bad as it used to be in this country. Yes, there was a bomb or two today (Sunday). There was a time that there were five, six, ten bombings in a day in this country.”
It is said that no matter how far falsehood has traveled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth. And the truth is that there was never a day throughout the five year administration of former President Jonathan when and where there were ‘five, six, 10 bombings in a day in this country.’’
