@iyesdan on Twitter, challenged the new Digital Communications Adviser to the President, who also joined in the pro-2012 protest- Occupy Nigeria, Tolu Ogunlesi.
The Twitter user wanted to know why Ogunlesi couldn’t stand by the same words he stood by 4 years ago now that the incident is repeating itself.
The tweet from @TunjiAndrews captures what some clearly see as absurdity.
.@iyesdan At bottom of those protests was Trust. Turns out we were not wrong: see how money was stolen/squandered in the years that followed

So we allowed money to be looted as subsidy because we didn't trust the government not to loot it.

This for me is the stupidity in every argument
You fought for resources to be wasted
So it wouldn't be wasted….. https://t.co/HBdaDAXkIg
