The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said that Nigerians are the greatest problem of the country.
Adesina, in an article published yesterday, scolded those people whom he claimed have nothing but to find faults in the country, while cautioning Nigerians against “disintegration, de-stabilisation and outright warx.
He admitted that the internecine conflict which came off the civil war was still very evident in some parts of the land.
The presidential spokesman said, “It’s often intriguing to hear eminent and well-appointed Nigerians talk about disintegration, destabilisation and outright war, as if it’s a picnic. War? Not a tea party, and not something you should wish even upon your enemy.
“We have our grouses with Nigeria. The President often talks of missed opportunities, and yes, this country has missed many, over the decades. But he adds that those of them who have fought to keep this country together would never open their eyes and see Nigeria dismembered. Loving the unloveable. That is what Nigerians need, if we would eventually get the country we desire.
“William Cowper, English writer, who lived between 1731 and 1800, said: ‘England, with all thy faults, I love thee still-my country”, he maintained.
Adesina said it was time Nigerians began to have a Nigerian agenda, instead of sectional agenda.
