Femi Adesina FG
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has described the #RevolutionNow protests held recently in different parts of the state as ‘Child’s Play’.

#RevolutionRecall that prominent Nigerian activists including Omoyele Sowore, Agba Jalingo, Pelumi Olajengbesin, Olawale Bakare a.k.a  Mandate, and others led the #RevolutionNow protest.

Reacting to the protest, Adesina said, Well, was it really a protest? By my estimation, it just seemed like a child’s play because protests by their very nature are spontaneous things, mass things. These are just a sprinkle of people trying to be funny. As far as I am concerned, it is nothing to worry about.

“A revolution is always a mass thing not a sprinkle of young boys and girls you saw yesterday in different parts of the country. I think it was just a funny thing to call it a revolution protest.

“In a country of 200 million people and if you see a sprinkle of people saying they are doing a revolution, it was a child’s play.#RevolutionNow -Organisers-to-continue-protest-tomorrow-change-venue.jpegWell, it will always matter because if you said it was a revolution, revolutions by definition are quite well known.

“Revolution is something that turns the normal order. What happened yesterday, would you call it a revolution? It was just an irritation, and some people want to cause an irritation in the country and what I will say is when things boil over, they boil over because you continue to heat them.

“When you see pockets of heating up in the country, eventually they culminate in a boiling over. So, Nigerians need to know that the country we get is what we use our hands to build.”Femi AdesinaPhoto Credit: Twitter
