The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has slammed the Senator representing Abia South Senatorial District, Eyinnaya Abaribe, in an article titled Weighty Matters About Our Country.
Concise News is aware that Abaribe stood as surety for IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu in 2017 before the later jumped bail and fled Nigeria.
Kanu was later captured in Kenya months ago and extradited to Nigeria to face charges bordering on treason.
Adesina, in his article, stated that Abaribe ought to be languishing in jail.
According to him, “Some people incite violence through words or actions, thus exacerbating the security challenges we have. You wonder where they are from, and why they would further stoke a burning fire with incendiary materials,” Adesina wrote.
“There is one funny Senator who talks about the mismanagement of our diversity as a country, yet he daily uses foul language against those in leadership. He stood surety for someone bent on dismemberment of the country, and when that one vanished, and he should have been cooling his feet in prison, the Senator still spews rubbish. Chief ‘mismanager’ of our diversity. And the President had words for him and his ilk, who exist round the country: ‘We are ready to arrest and prosecute all persons inciting violence through words or action. Our resolve for a peaceful, united and one Nigeria remains resolute and unwavering. The seeds of violence are planted in people’s heads through words. Reckless utterances of a few have led to losses of many innocent lives and destruction of properties.’”
