The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has urged Nigerians to drop the habit of complaining.

Adesina made the comment during a recent interview with Radio Continental, The Cable reports.

“I think Nigerians have always complained, and we should learn to stop complaining and believe more,” he said.

"If you have elected a government because you believe it can bring change, and you have not allowed them to isolate what the problems are, and articulate what the solutions would be, and you begin to have all these complaints, I think it is not natural.

“What government needs at a time like this, is cooperation and support. The president said this at an interview last week. He said things deteriorated over 16 years that PDP was in power, this is the ninth month of this government, and you want everything to have changed. It is not real.

“There must be realistic expectation, and realistic expectation will demand that people are patient, supportive, and encourage the government. This is a government that is working for the people. Rather than complaining, let us cooperate, support and encourage. “

The promised change will come. Don’t forget that our president said it would take a minimum of 18 months to revive the economy. Nigerians don’t listen to something like that, they want magic immediately. It doesn’t happen that way. This change will come, but it would follow a process, and it would be enduring,” Adesina added.
