Femi Adeshina the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity has describe the President as an ‘unbending iron’ even though he exercised restraint in the dealing of the violence that erupted as a result of the #EndSARS protests.
Adeshina said that if Buhari had not exercised restrainst the rivers would have turned ‘crimson’- bloody. He added that the Buhari is patient and enduring to a fault.
He disclosed this in a statement titled ‘We Have Not Many Fathers’ and was released via his official Facebook page on Thursday night, November 12.
The statement reads in part;
“If President Buhari hadn’t exercised the restraint and tolerance of a father, at a time that even hitherto respected people instigated the protesters to carry on (and they promptly went underground when anarchy ensued), we would have been talking of something else in the country.
“The rivers of Nigeria could have turned crimson, and mourning and lamentations would have suffused the land.
“But we are thankful for the father in President Buhari, patient and enduring, almost to a fault.”
“May God continue to give this country good fathers who remain calm in turbulence, who keep their heads when others are losing theirs,”
