The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has said that the situation in Nigeria could get tough for a while but the president would be able to handle it.

Adesina also urged Nigerians to be patient with Buhari as he tackles the country’s economic challenges.

The presidential aide made the comments during a recent interview with Radio Continental, the exceprts of which he posted on Facebook.

“Nigeria is in good hands. The times are rough, it could get rougher in the nearest future, but it would then get better,” Adesina said.

“Don’t forget that in 1983, times were really very rough with Nigeria also. Then, there came a head of state who began to reset the buttons, began to relay the foundations. And 20 months after, things were getting better, before a spanner was thrown in the works.

“That person, who is now the president, can do it again, I will just tell people to be patient. Rough times would come, but we will survive it .Tough times may be here but it will be over. There may be some turbulence, but after some time, we would begin to cruise.

“This president would get it right. We need to be patient and lend support. A number of people have decided to be critical, even when criticisms are not necessary.

“We are not in pre-election mode again. I would like to tell them that elections are over. In other parts of the world, when elections are over, they all team up and move the country forward. Let’s do the same with Nigeria,” he added.

Meanwhile, Buhari, while presenting the 2016 budget on December 22, assured Nigerians that his administration would not betray the trust reposed in it.
