The Presidency on Monday said millions of Nigerians are not bothered about the rearrest of #RevolutionNow protest convener, Omoyele Sowore, at the Federal High Court in Abuja last Friday.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, stated this on Channels Televison programme, Sunrise Daily.
Adesina was asked to react to the outrage that greeted the rearrest of Sowore inside the court by the operatives of Department of State Service(DSS).
He said the Presidency stands by the claim of the DSS that the video circulating did not reflect what actually transpired in court.
“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 on 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,” Adesina said.
