The Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Femi Adesina, has urged Nigerians to continue to exercise patience with the Federal Government especially with regards to issues of insecurity in the country.
The President’s media aide made the appeal during an appearance on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics when asked how much longer Nigerians should wait till the issue of insecurity is resolved.
He said security is not something that a timeline can be put on; rather it is an ongoing issue that needs to constantly be reviewed.
“Patience must be elastic, it’s not something that you get to a point and say patience has run out. Patience must be a continuous thing,” he said.
“There are certain things in which you don’t have control of all the variables. If you don’t have all the variables, you don’t then begin to give timelines. And security is not one of those things that you will give a timeline to say by this time to this time, we will achieve this.
“All over the world, security is a continuous thing and even the most advanced countries, are still working at it”.
He mentioned that since the kidnap and rescue of the Kankara schoolboys, other incidents of kidnapping and banditry have continued to occur.
“Security remains a work in progress” he said.
