A cross section of Nigerians have attacked the Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, Femi Adesina for his claim over an alleged plot by some Nigerians to pass a vote of no confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari due to the high level of insecurity in the country.

He wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday, ‘They Should Let Us Breathe,’ blamed the Senate, opposition party, religious leaders and civil society groups for the state of the nation, saying they should “please get their knees off the neck of Nigerians.”

He added, “Rather than team up with government and security agencies to find solutions, some past and present political leaders, disgruntled religious leaders, and ethnic champions are in cahoots, to exacerbate the situation.

“They are plotting to hold conferences, which would pass a vote of no confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari, a man they so much love to hate.”

Many Nigerians blasted the former SUN Managing Director turned Presidential Spokesman online and some of the comments read:

@holluremy, said, “It is the president and the presidency that should remove their legs from the neck of Nigeria and Nigerians. Go to the streets and find out how Nigerians feel about your government. Let the president hear the voices of the people that elected him. Stop the hypocrisy.”

Similarly, @solomonlaw20 asked, “Is the citizenry breathing?”

@Musayakubumust2 also said, “Speaking of the insecurity situation in the country, your boss appealed to terrorists to release students kidnapped for weeks. What a president we have!”
