KanyiDaily recalls that on Wednesday, Nigerians across the country hit the streets to demand improved governance, an end to corruption and senseless killings from the Buhari administration.
But rather than protecting the peaceful demonstrators, heavily-armed security agents unleashed by the government pounced on the protesters, harassing, brutalising, and arresting dozens of them.
Speaking on Channels Television on Thursday morning, Adesina said only few youths were involved in the protest and that it should not be seen as a revolution.
He said that the Nigerian Government won’t take the RevolutionNow protests serious until millions of citizens take to the streets to in different parts of the country to display their frustration against the administration.
“Well, was it really a protest? By my estimation, it just seemed like a child’s play because protests by their very nature are spontaneous things, mass things. These are just a sprinkle of people trying to be funny. As far as I am concerned, it is nothing to worry about.
“A revolution is always a mass thing, not a sprinkle of young boys and girls you saw yesterday (Wednesday) in different parts of the country. I think it was just a funny thing to call it a revolution protest.
“Revolution is something that turns the normal order. What happened yesterday, would you call it a revolution?
“It was just an irritation, just an irritation and some people want to cause irritation in the country and what I will say is when things boil over, they boil over because you continue to heat them,” he said.
KanyiDaily had reported that security agents arrested more than 60 #RevolutionNow protesters amid subjected the to inhuman treatment in Abuja.
