Femi Adesina has been silent for a long while now, it is sudden but not weird to see him expressing his opinion on nothing but the Igbo Senator.
Not surprising at all.
from @lindaikejiblogofficial Presidential aide, Femi Adesina has said that the senator who stood as surety for someone bent on dismembering Nigeria should have been in jail.
