Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari has come under fire after a controversial Christmas tweet.
“Merry Christmas to all, including the Wailing Wailers,” Adesina tweeted today, December 25, 2015.
The tweet immediately provoked a reaction from Nigerians who were having what many have described as the worst Christmas ever amid severe economic hardships that had engulfed the land.
Below are some of the reactions in tweets:
Someone Called Femi Adesina an Industrial Idiot? ????????????????

Mr. Femi Adesina should apologise to the whole country and tender his resignation, This is one faux pas too many.

If Femi Adesina is this terrible in his comments, what do you expect from the govt that retains him as a Media and Publicity adviser?

Such impolitical statement from @FemAdesina leaves a lot to be desired. A person like the SA to the President should be made of wiser stuff.

Put us all in prison, @FemAdesina is a bipolar idiot for calling tax payers wailing wailers. Nigeria is a country and not a zoo.

Egbon Femi Adesina is intoxicated by Aso Rock Ogogoro. He needs milk from Daura’s 150 cows. https://t.co/ECzQUBaDHg

Femi Adesina last week begged us to work with the APC. Today he called the opposition wailers on Xmas day. Buhari is surrounded by Morons

A President that cares about our unity should not have a retard like Femi Adesina in his media team.

Femi Adesina is from Osun state. Apparently many of his village witches are also owed salaries by Aregbe. So, they’re charming him in anger!

One is still shocked at the immaturity of Femi Adesina. Such a divisive tweet on Christmas day, my goodness.
