Nigerians react to Femi Adesina’s statement on Leah Sharibu
Nigerians have been reacting to the statement made by Femi Adesina, the special adviser on media and publicity to the president, on the matter of kidnapped Dapchi girl’s return.
On a Channels TV morning programme, Adesina was asked when Leah Sharibu would be rescued from Boko Haram. He said, “When will she be back? That question can only be answered by God, but I believe that God is interested in that young girl,” he said.
“The Government is working on and at it, and we believe she will be back.”
Since his statement, Twitter users have been sharing their own opinions.

On @sunrisedailynowFemi Adesina shouldn’t be laughing this much during an interview where he is mainly talking about a kidnapped teenager, Lean Sharibu who has been in captivity for month.
Maope: How Long will Leah Sharibu remain with the abductors?— Tcee 🇳🇬 (@emmaikumeh) August 28, 2018
Femi Adesina: Hmmmmmm. Only God can answer that.
Just look at the kind of person Buhari appointed as his spokesperson 😂😂😂😂🐱
Twitter saddens me this morning. And that’s saying something cos i usually come here just for laffs. Every trending topic, from Buhari, to Femi Adesina, to Leah Sharibu is just a blatant reminder of the failed state conditions this administration led us to. Y’all should pls vote— Casper (@_cas_per) August 28, 2018
I’m still confused by the high-level negotiations that allowed Islamic terrorists to keep a Christian girl, Leah Sharibu, whilst returning all the other girls.— Rosemary: is the R in VAR! (@RMAjayi) August 28, 2018
I pray for Leah’s safe and speedy return. My heart goes out to her and her loved ones.
Meanwhile, Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the president, on Media and Publicity revealed that the presidency is investigating the alleged audio made by the kidnapped Dapchi girl that has been circulating since Monday.I wonder why this girl’s release is not made a trending topic by all and sundry
We are aware of the audio in circulation concerning the unfortunate situation of our daughter, Leah Sharibu. In dealing with terrorists, nothing is too trivial.
