Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr. Femi Adesina, has claimed that he would have turned down his appointment as the president’s media aide if he had seen it coming.
According to Adesina, his appointment came as surprise to him, adding that he would have done all he could to, perhaps, stop the appointment before his announcement.
Adesina made this disclosure during a feature on Sweet FM’s Flagship programme, The Podium.
“I was not expecting it. Maybe if I knew, I would have done all in my powers to make sure it did not happen,” Adesina said.
“I have known him since he started contesting and wrote good things about him but I did not know he will appoint me as his adviser.”
The Presidential spokesperson also argued that the anti-corruption fight of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration isn’t a selective one.
He further argued that the president’s cabinet and other APC members are not deliberately being exempted from the anti-corruption fight, adding that no member of Buhari’s cabinet has been indicted in corruption.
“The onus lies on he who alleges to also prove,” he said.
“The fact that any PDP member crosses to APC does not provide automatic shield. Whoever is indicted will be prosecuted.”
“Mr. President has said it all. No one is out to intimidate the judiciary. DSS raid was a raid on corruption not Judiciary,” he said concerning raid on Nigerian judges,” he added.
