Buhari’s Documentary Not Linked With Fuel Scarcity –Adesina

Buhari’s Documentary Not Linked With Fuel Scarcity –Adesina


Femi Adesina, special adviser on media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, has dismissed the assertion that the 55-minute documentary on President Muhammadu Buhari was aired at the wrong time considering the fuel scarcity-induced hardship being experienced by Nigerians.

Adesina, who was responding to reactions online over the planned airing of the documentary on Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and Channels Television on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, observed that some of the comments were borne out of genuine concern.

The presidential spokesman, in a statement in Abuja on Sunday, however, condemned other comments he said were virulent.

“I have read a lot of reactions, particularly online, on the timing of the airing of the documentary on President Muhammadu Buhari, slated for December 24 and 25, respectively, by 8pm on NTA and Channels Television.

“Some of the comments are borne out of genuine concern, which we appreciate, while others are virulent, coming from inveterate complainers. Fault-finding is the stock-in-trade of such people, and if they mistakenly find themselves in Heaven, they would even complain against God. They have no other pastime.

“The reactions mainly dwell on the fact that a documentary showing the human side of the president (as against the well-known iron and steel) is coming at a time there is severe fuel scarcity in the country.

“And I say, why not? Is life all about doom and gloom? Must we sit in ashes and wear sackcloth perpetually, and ignore the brighter side of life? God forbid!”

Adesina attributed the ongoing fuel scarcity to what he described as “a combination of SNAFU (Situation Normal All Fouled Up) in the distribution process of petrol, and deliberate mischief and sabotage by some marketers, who want to force the hands of government to increase the pump price.”

He stated that hoarding of products, and panic buying further compounded the situation.

He, however, reassured that the Federal Government was working round the clock to restore normalcy in the oil sector.

“Should we then be perpetually like King Lear at his worst, and consign ourselves to the doldrums occasioned by fuel scarcity at a festive period? No.

“Despite the temporal pains, life must continue, and we must look at the cheery side, while government works hard to bring succour.

“That is why I disagree with armchair critics, who wail at the drop of a hat. Millions of Nigerians appreciate President Buhari, love him passionately, and would watch the airing of the documentary, which shows the president in a perspective not very well-known before.”

“It’s a spice for the holiday season, and not even ephemeral fuel crisis would dampen the enthusiasm of positive-minded Nigerians,” he added.
