President Muhammadu Buhari is a man of many parts apart from his downtime with illness that has denied him of his more vocal and interesting parts, he is a detailed person and Femi Adesina knows too.
Adesina was Buhari’s first appointment when he became the president of Nigeria and Adesina, as Senior Special Assistant on Media, is the mouthpiece and earpiece of the President.
Bashir Ahmad, Personal Assistant to the president on New Media, revealed what the president told Adesina when he assumed office.
He instructed that even if everybody lies to him, Adesina must give him raw fact on situations on ground irrespective of his argument, which is a nature of a soldier.
Though Nigerians have mixed reactions to this, but it’s more question for the media aide than the president.
People will just tell you what they think you want to hear. But from you, I want the truth. As a General, I may argue, but please argue with me. Tell me the truth always. – President @MBuhari to @FemAdesina on the day he resumed work as his Media adviser.
