Real reason President Muhammadu Buhari didn’t mention anything about the shootings of #ENDSARS protesters in Lekki on Tuesday night during a nationwide broadcast has been revealed by his media aide.
Femi Adesina who is the Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity maintained that the reason is because it would be “premature and presumptuous” to mention such during the national broadcast.
According to his media aide, who appeared on Politics Today , a live show on Channel Televisions monitored by The Nation, the President couldn’t have said anything about the shooting because it was being investigated.
He said: “The Defence Headquarters issued a statement to say that it was investigating the matter. Lagos State Governor has also set up a probe panel to investigate what really happened.
“So, the President couldn’t have said anything because it would be premature and presumptuous while investigation is ongoing. It is after investigation has been concluded that he can speak on the matter.”
