Special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina has asked the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union to deal with their country issues and not Meddle in Nigeria’s affairs.
Femi stated this in response to a question on the allegations of human rights abuses by the Federal Government with a focus on those in detention, including the convener of #RevolutionNow movement, Mr Omoyele Sowore.
Advising the countries and organisation to rather address the issues in their respective domains, Femi said “We are not answerable to either the U.S. or the UK or the EU; we are Nigeria, a sovereign country,” Adesina said during an interview on Wednesday’s episode of Channels Television’s Politics Today.
He added, “Those countries and entities have issues of their own; let them deal with their issues. Let Nigeria also deal with her internal issues. We are not answerable to them.”
Barely 24 hours after Omoyele Sowore was released on the order of the court, he was rearrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) on Friday last week.
Sowore’s rearrest and the circumstances that led to it were strongly condemned by the civil society and Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, among many others.
