The Special Adviser on Media Affairs and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina has stated that Nigeria is a sovereign nation therefore not answerable to the US, UK or EU regarding cases of human rights abuses.

This statement was uttered by Femi Adesina when he appeared on Channels TV on Wednesday night, December 11th as a guest.

The statement he made was in reference to comments from the EU, UK and the US on the invasion of the Federal High Court Abuja by men of the Department of State Services to re-arrest the Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore.

Adesina said: “We are not answerable to the US, the UK or the EU. We are Nigeria, a sovereign country. Those countries and entities have issues of their own. Let them deal with their issues. Let Nigeria also deal with her internal issues. We are not answerable to them.”

He went on to speak about Wole Soyinka’s criticisms against the regime of the President, stating that the Nobel laureate was free to express his opinion.

“We respect Prof. Soyinka. You don’t have too many of them in the country or even on the continent. He is an avatar and he is well respected but his opinion will remain his opinion. It will be considered and if there are things to act on, we will act on them,” he said.

When asked to comment on the recent attack on his senior colleague, Garba Shehu by the first lady, Aisha Buhari, Adesina said he will not be able to comment as he is not the person that was attacked by the first lady. He went on to add that the President’s family is off limits except the President directs him speak on the issue.
