President Buhari spokesman asks Nigerian artist to "shut up" on live radio programme


Femi Adesina, the special adviser on media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, January 30, asked veteran artiste, Dede Mabiaku to ‘shut up’ during an argument on a live radio show.
A video of the incident, which has now gone viral, shows Mabiaku storming out of the radio studio angrily with the spokesman to the president laughing.
Mabiaku refused to continue with the interview stating that Adesina’s statement was inappropriate.
“Why do you want to hear me when he (Adesina) had the audacity to tell me to shut up?” he asked.
He stated that Adesina had no right to use such language on him because he works with the government.

Meanwhile, Adesina said those who are planning the protest are people who supported Goodluck Jonathan’s government and are still pained that he lost.

He said: "This is a country of about 180 million people. It is impossible for 180 million people to think the same way. Yoruba has a saying that is you all sleep and put your head in the same direction, then you are all foolish because you would be breathing in one another's mouth and lungs. Dont forget the last election and how it went. Somebody scored 12.5 million votes, another scored about 15 million votes. There are some people who are still in that election mode."
