Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to President Mohammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity has urged the critics of Buhari administrations to calm down and wail less in 2021.
Adesina described the criticisms received by the present administration in Nigeria in an article he published on Thursday as enormous and insults. He said the critics should stop criticizing and find jobs to do.
He said, “2021 is the year of work, hard work, to deliver on the major projects by next year. Is it than a year to continue wailing? No. It is the year to calm down, a year for wailing wailers to find a vocation, and allow the government to concentrate, and deliver on projects at hand.
“Anybody who loves the country must resolve to give the government as little distraction as possible this year. Yes, there are challenges: security, economy, improving quality of lives, lack of jobs, inflation and many others. But is it the year to wail? No. We should rather hail, encourage the government to do better, and engender better standards of living for Nigerians.”
“So, what am I saying. No criticism in 2021? No. But let it not be a full-time vocation, as it has been with some people. They will criticize the rail project of the government, calling it white elephant, but will be the first to hop on the trains, taking selfies in it. Wailers, calm down.
“Please, ‘be calming down’ in 2021, so that the government can function with less distractions. It is not the year to cavil, find unnecessary faults, and fill the land with lamentations.”
