Adesina made the comment while appearing on Channels TV’s “Sunday Politics” on March 27, 2016.

“If some people are crying that they are in darkness, they should go and hold those who vandalize the installations, that’s it,” the presidential aide said.

Adesina had earlier urged Nigerians to stop complaining about the situation in the country.

“I think Nigerians have always complained, and we should learn to stop complaining and believe more,” he said during an interview with Radio Continental.

“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," he added.

Adesina had earlier said that things could get tough in the country for a while but that Buhari would be able to handle it.
