Millions Of Nigerians Not Bothered About Sowore’s Rearrest —Presidency
The Presidency has said that millions of Nigerians are not bothered about the rearrest of SaharaReporters Publisher , Omoyele Sowore , at the Federal High Court in Abuja last Friday .
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity , Femi Adesina , said this during Channels Television ’s Sunrise Daily programme on Monday .
Adesina was asked to react to the outrage that greeted the violent rearrest of Sowore .
He said the Presidency stands by the claim of the State Security Service that the video circulating did not reflect what actually transpired in court .
The President ’ s spokesman added, “ I don ’t particularly agree with you when you say a lot of Nigerians ( are not happy ) , you know that all this noise has been coming from less than 100 ,000 Nigerians . And the noise will be so loud that you think it is the whole country .
“ It is a country of 198 million people . When just 100 , 000 are making noise in the social and traditional media , you would think the whole country is in an uproar . There are millions and millions of people who are not bothered.
“ There are millions of people who know what the issues are. So, you cannot just seek the opinion of a local minority and then conclude that the country is in an uproar. ”
