The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said some Nigerians are the greatest problem of their country.
In his weekly column, the presidential spokesman cautioned Nigerians against ” disintegration, destabilization and outright war”.
He said although the country is not perfect, many should do their best to make it work. Adesina criticised those who do nothing but find faults in the country, saying the repercussion of a crisis can better be imagined.
“It’s often intriguing to hear eminent and well appointed Nigerians talk about disintegration, destabilization and outright war, as if it’s a picnic. War? Not a tea party, and not something you should wish even upon your enemy.
Nigeria fought a war before, in which about two million people died. There was sorrow, tears and blood, till good sense prevailed, and we said there was no victor, no vanquished. The scars of that internecine conflict are still very evident in some parts of the land.
“Why then do some newspaper columnists, public commentators, ethnic warlords, even academics, talk of war as something they long for, an affliction they want to inflict their country with? War? Is it a picnic or tea party? “I have seen enough to make me conclude that the greatest problem of Nigeria are Nigerians themselves. They seem to hate their country.
There was that atheist who said on his death bed. “I hate everybody. I hate God. I even hate myself.” That seems to be the experience of a good number of Nigerians,” he wrote.
