Why Buhari didn’t speak on Lekki toll gate shooting in his speech- Adesina

The presidency has disclosed why President Buhari didn’t address Nigerians regarding the Lekki toll gate shooting, during his speech yesterday October 22.

Presidential aide, Femi Adesina in an interview on Channels TV’s ‘Politics Today’ noted that it would be “premature and presumptuous” for Buhari to speak on the shooting while it was still being investigated. 

Adesina said; 

“The Defence Headquarters issued a statement to say that it was investigating the matter. Lagos State Governor has also set up a probe panel to investigate what really happened.

“So, the President couldn’t have said anything because it would be premature and presumptuous while investigation is ongoing. It is after investigation has been concluded that he can speak on the matter.”
