The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has stated that Buhari is not a talkative and so he is not expected to speak on every matter that comes up in the country, including the herdsmen crisis.
Adesina, who made his stand known on a Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Tuesday, said that nigerians are yearning to hear the position of the President on the lingering crisis being caused by herdsmen across the country.
Just few days ago, elder statesman, and Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka called on Buhari to address Nigerians before it’s too late.
Also, the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, among many other Nigerians, had called for the enactment of a law to abolish the movement of cattle by herdsmen from the Northern part of the country to other parts.
Asked about the reaction of the President on this, the presidential aide said, “When you have knotty issues like this, many ideas will be proffered, many solutions will be canvassed. The President does not have to speak on each and every one of them.
“He does not have to, it was just an idea being proffered. It should be looked into and then if it is a consensus, it should be adopted.
“But it is not as one idea comes the President speaks on it, another idea comes, the President speaks on it, such must be a talkative President.”
Lending his voice to the Fulani herdsmen crisis, Senior pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa had on Wednesday said that the dream of people of the South West region to leave Nigeria would become true very soon.
Giwa called on president Buhari to caution his Fulani kinsmen from terrorizing Yoruba region and other parts of the country.
