The Presidency, on Monday, berated those criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari over the state of the nation.
Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said some of Buhari’s critics are trying to divide the country.
He said those who divided Nigeria with their mouths and evil thoughts are accusing the President of the same.
In a tweet, Buhari said their intentions to divide the country would not work.
“Those who divided Nigeria with their mouths, with evil, unguarded speaking, are the ones now accusing President Buhari. How sad! Their wicked intentions shall not come to pass,” he said.
Adesina’s comment is coming after the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah called out the Buhari administration.
Kukah accused the Buhari administration of having shown far greater commitment to integrating so-called repentant terrorists than getting school children and thousands of others back from kidnappers or keeping Nigerian universities open.
Also, the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, had called for Buhari’s resignation over the spate of insecurity in Nigeria.
