Adeshina to Nigerians: Thank Buhari for “little mercies” you are getting

The Presidency has urged Nigerians to be thanking President Mohammadu Buhari for receiving at least little mercies from him.

He enjoined them to focus on his good sides instead of emphasizing on just negative aspects

The senior presidential spokesman, who is also the  the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adeshina said this while featuring on Channels Television’s Sunday politics.

He noted that once upon a time in Nigeria that bomb blasts happen six times daily the country, noting that under Buhari’s Government, this has stopped.


He 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 thankful for it and let’s not dwell on negatives alone.

“Life is taking the rough and smooth together. So, sometimes we see when things go on for days, for weeks with no negative developments, let us emphasise those ones… We have challenges, but these are not the constants in the country
