President Muhammadu Buhari’s most senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adeshina has told Nigerians to be thankful that bombings don’t happening daily.
Adeshina said that the country’s security has improved and is still improving by the day, he said this in response to the complaints made by Nigerians following about five separate attacks and killings within the last three days.
He said that the killings and bombings no longer occur on a day-to-day basis as it used to be in the past. He said this in an interview with Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
In his words;
“Yes, there are times, a week, two weeks even a month that you don’t have all these things happening. There was a time in the immediate past when they happened daily several times. You talked of one bombing within three or four days. There was a time in this country when bombs went off like firecrackers every day.
“There could be five, six bombings in one day. Now, you can have two, three months with no single case of bombing. Let’s be thankful for small mercies. Any mercies we receive, let’s be thankful for it and let’s not dwell on negatives alone.
“Life is taking the rough and smooth together. So, sometimes we see when things go on for days, for weeks with no negative developments, let us emphasise those ones… We have challenges, but these are not the constants in the country.”
