The presidency has said those asking President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over rising insecurity are only exercising their freedom of speech.
Reacting to calls for Buhari to resign just as the president himself asked former President Goodluck to resign in 2013, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said people have the freedom to express themselves under a democracy.
Adesina spoke while featuring on Channels Television programme ‘Politics Today’ monitored by VANTAGE NEWS.
He said, “Under a democracy, people have freedom of speech. That is one thing that is peculiar to democracy. You have freedom of speech although that freedom also has boundary”.
“There is no freedom that does not have boundaries. The freedom that does not have boundaries will even injure thee person who is utilising that freedom”.
“So, if anybody says that kind of thing under a democracy, it is allowed but when it verges on causing chaos , that person may be asked to come and answer certain questions”.
