SWITZERLAND, MAY 27 – The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, says Nigerians are lucky to have President Muhammadu Buhari, as their leader.
Adesina has come under fire following some of his comments.
He insists his boss is performing well, despite the contrary opinions held by critics.
The presidential spokesman said he owed no one apologies for being a ‘Buharist’, adding that he would continue to remain one.
“In fact, we are lucky to have him at a time like this,” he tweeted on his handle, @FemiAdesina.
“I am a Buharist any day, no apologies, and I believe the President is leading the country well.”
Adesina was reacting to comments made about him by persons he described as “mischief-makers”.
He wrote, “A quote from mischief-makers is making the rounds, ascribed to me. I just dey laugh.”
He has faced more heat since the appointment of Prof Ibrahim Gambari as the Chief of Staff to the President.
Adesina’s critics, in their latest attacks, reminded him of how he vilified Gambari in the past over the latter’s alleged supportive role in the trial and execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa by the Sani Abacha regime.
Some mocked him, saying he might have to eat his words now that the same Gambari had become his boss at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
