Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has decided not to talk about those he tagged as ‘wailing wailer’ in their private capacities.
Adesina stated that he was too committed to reply those wailers who were hell bent on “spoiling the current administration with thief tongues.”
He disclosed this why asked to react to statement credited to a former Minister of Education, Mrs Oby Ezekwesili, in which she was described his [Adesina’s] recent statement as a “terribly indecorous press release.”
Adesina had issued a statement on Friday saying the reported discussion between President Muhammadu Buhari and the World Bank Group President, Jim Yong Kim, was deliberately twisted by those who he said specialised in such acts.
He had said, “Ignorant and mischievous people” were making it seem that Buhari’s position was a calculated attempt to give the North an unfair advantage over other parts of Nigeria.
But Ezekwesili said Adesina worsened the debate with his statement.
Ezekwesili asked President Buhari to rein in members of his media team and re-train them for effectiveness.
