The presidency came up with an excuse on President Muhammadu Buhari silence on the shootings of #ENDSARS protesters in Lekki on Tuesday night during a nationwide broadcast.
The Special Adviser to Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, who appeared on Politics Today, a live show on Channel Televisions monitored by NewsSpecng said it would be “premature and presumptuous” of the President since 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.”
