President Muhammadu Buhari’s-led Government has asked Nigerian citizens to be very thankful for the little mercies shown to them by the government instead of finding faults.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, stated this on Channels Television’s Sunday politics.
Femi Adesina said all Nigerian citizens should be very thankful that bombings by Boko Haram insurgents don’t happen again daily in the nation.
Femi Adesina stated this while responding to the complaints by Nigerians over the rising insecurity in the nation.
Femi Adesina recalled that there was a time in Nigeria when bombs go off about six times in a single day, insisting that since Muhammadu Buhari became President, the killings had reduced.
When asked if security had improved under the Buhari’s administration, Femi Adesina, the presidential aide, said, “Yes, there are times, a week, two weeks even a month that you don’t have all these things happening.
“There was a time in the immediate past when they happened daily several times. You talked of one bombing within three or four days.
“There was a time in this country when bombs went off like firecrackers every day.
“There could be five, six bombings in one day. Now, you can have two, three months with no single case of bombing.
“Let’s be thankful for small mercies. Any mercies we receive, let’s be grateful for it and let’s not dwell on negatives alone.
“Life is taking the rough and smooth together. Sometimes we see when things go on for days, for weeks with no negative developments, let us emphasize those ones… We have challenges, but these are not the constants in the country.”
Recall that about 344 students from the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara, Katsina State, were kidnapped from the boarding school over a week ago.
However, the schoolboys were, returned on Friday, having spent exactly one week in the Boko Haram’s den.
