#EndSARS protest: I’ve been receiving curses on my phone – Femi Adesina

Published

on

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has stated that he’s been receiving curses after a false report of him being against the #EndSARS protests went viral on social media. 

In a lenghty article titled ‘An Enemy of the People’ which he shared on Thursday October 15, Femi Adesina insisted that he has never advised the President to ignore the #EndSARS protests rocking the nation. 

The presidential spokesperson further stated that he was never given a chance to respond to the claim. 

FOR WELL OVER ONE WEEK, THE POLITY HAS BEEN SUFFUSED WITH WHAT PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI DESCRIBES AS “GENUINE CONCERNS AND AGITATIONS BY NIGERIANS ABOUT THE EXCESSIVE USE OF FORCE AND IN SOME CASES EXTRA-JUDICIAL KILLINGS AND WRONGFUL CONDUCT BY MEN OF THE NIGERIA POLICE FORCE.”

AND IN THAT PERIOD OF TIME TOO, I HAVE HAD STRIDENT EFFORTS BEING MADE TO POSITION ME AS AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE. VERY SERIOUS EFFORTS BY MEAN PEOPLE, WHO ARE SIMPLY OUT TO GENERATE HATRED AND ANIMUS AGAINST OTHER PEOPLE, FOR NO OTHER REASON THAN LUCIFEROUS AND PERNICIOUS FEELING OF SMUG SATISFACTION.

AS A YEAR TWO UNDERGRADUATE AT THE THEN UNIVERSITY OF IFE IN 1982, ONE OF THE TEXTS RECOMMENDED FOR US IN ENGLISH LITERATURE CLASS WAS ENEMY OF THE PUBLIC BY THE NORWEGIAN WRITER, HENRIK IBSEN. I REMEMBER TRAVELING FROM ILE-IFE THEN TO THE POPULAR ODUSOTE BOOKSTORES IN IBADAN TO PROCURE THE BOOK, ALONG WITH SOME OTHER RECOMMENDED TEXTS.

THE TERM ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE ORIGINATED IN ROMAN TIMES AS HOSTIS PUBLICUS, WHICH IF TRANSLATED DIRECTLY MEANS, ‘PUBLIC ENEMY,’ SOMEONE ACTING AGAINST THE LARGER GROUP, INDEED, AGAINST SOCIETY.
