Presidential media aide, Femi Adesina has condemned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) describing its members as ‘Wailing Wailers’.

Adesina made the comment after the opposition party rejected the appointment of Acting Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Chairman (INEC), Amina Zakari.

“If PDP has begun to cry wolf where there was none on INEC chairman, then they should be set for louder lamentations. The wailing wailers,” Adesina tweeted on Tuesday, July 1, 2015.

The PDP had demanded Zakari’s removal after alleging that she was too close to the Presidency and that her appointment reeked of bias.

Adesina has however been criticized for his comment which many believe is unbecoming for a Presidency official.
