Buhari’s spokesman Femi Adesina likens Nigeria to ram’s testicles


Femi Adeshina

Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) on Media and Publicity, has compared the country’s unstable economy to a ram’s testicles.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines testicles as a typically paired male reproductive gland that produces sperm and secretes testosterone and that in most mammals is contained within the scrotum at sexual maturity.

In his weekly article posted on Facebook on Thursday, the media aide claimed that politicians and other Nigerians who lost in the 2019 presidential election were still bent on tarnishing Buhari’s image.

Adesina further declared that no matter the challenges and turbulence the world’s most populous black nation Nigeria encounter, it would never disintegrate.

He said:

“As I often say, this country is like the testicles of a ram, which gyrates from side to side, as the animal runs.

“However fast the speed of the ram, have you ever seen the testicles fall off? Or, when a woman runs, holds her breasts, is it for fear that those tender parts will fall off? It never happens.”

With such analogy, political observers have suggested that Adesina might be attempting to browbeat his principal’s critics, which they said cut across religious and political leaders.

“These political, religious and ethnic leaders should please get their knees off the necks of Nigerians, and they should let us breathe.

“Nigeria is bigger than them, and the country will survive.

“Incidentally, while combating insecurity, and myriads of other challenges, President Buhari is making conquests on other fronts, particularly infrastructure. Roads, bridges, rail network, airports, gas pipelines, other massive projects are ongoing.

“And they are telling themselves: unless we stop this man, he will still become the authentic Nigerian hero. So they are throwing everything against him, including the kitchen sink,” he said.
