Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has said that many Nigerians are pleased with the president.

Adesina made the comment during an interview after being told that Nigerians are unhappy with Buhari.

“Well, I would just say that person is guilty of over-generalisation. When you say Nigerians, where are the facts? It is not empirical,” Adesina told Osasu Igbinedion on “The Osasu Show.”

“What research has he conducted, how many Nigerians did he talk to? How many responded this way, how many responded that way? It is not scientific, it is not empirical. It is not true.

“I tell you, millions upon millions of Nigerians are with this administration, they are with this president, they believe in him, they believe he would bring change to the country, and they are willing to wait till that change touches different aspect of our lives.

 “Of course, in different areas of our national life, we have seen the change. For instance, don’t you trust your government now, particularly the government at the centre? You trust the government.

“The economy will pick up. We are in recession now, we will exit it and things will get better but it needs patience. The promises that have been made to Nigerians, we would need patience before we can inherit the promise,” he added.

Adesina however refused to speak on Buhari’s controversial statement that his wife, Aisha belongs in the kitchen.
