Femi Adesina, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity has reacted to what some Nigerians and politicians are saying concerning the statement of the President as he arrived from his London 10 days vacation, that he will jail all corrupt politicians who has looted Nigerian Treasury.
Many people particularly the major opposition party, PDP, has condemn the statement of the President.
Mr. Femi Adesina has reacted that it is only thieves that should be worried about Buhari’s comments.
According to Femi Adesina;
“Some people will criticize anything. They will find faults about anything. If they don’t have something to fault, they will begin to fault themselves. Therefore, it doesn’t worry us when we hear people like that because even if they mistakenly get to heaven, they will find fault with God. It is typical of some human beings and we have plenty of them in the country. But we are also grateful that we have many more, millions and millions who know what is going on and who appreciate the president. Talking of jailing thieves, its only thieves and potential thieves that need worry about that statement.
“If you are a thief, yes you have every cause to worry. If you are a potential thief, you have every cause to worry – because there was a time stealing was not corruption, but stealing is corruption today and if you are caught in corruption, you’ll answer. Therefore, you have every cause to worry,
Adesina said the President is only emphasizing on his campaign promises to rid Nigeria of corruption. According to Mr Adesina, corruption is a continuous process.
