The Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina, on Friday asked former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo to mind his language and thoughts.
The former President had recently noted that he does not believe in one Nigeria at any cost, even though he wants the country to remain united and peaceful.
He said, “It is better than Nigeria stays together and find solutions to its challenges than for each tribe to go its separate way.”
“I am a strong believer of one Nigeria, but not one Nigeria at any cost. But one Nigeria where every Nigerian can feel proud that he or she has a stake in this country,” he had said.
Adesina while responding to the statement of the elder statesman said, “And what of Olusegun Obasanjo, a civil war hero. Despite all that he has contributed to the current upheavals by his actions and inactions, words, and bile, he says it is idiotic to wish Nigeria disintegration now. Good. But let us put our money where our mouth is. Let Baba mind his thoughts and his language.”
In another development, Adesina, on Friday condemned prophets who have predicted that Nigeria will break up soon.
The presidential aide in his weekly article said such prophecies were put out during the administrations of at least three former presidents.
