How Buhari Chose Me, Out Of 3 Of Us To Be His Spokesman – Femi Adesina

Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to former President Muhammadu Buhari, has opened up on how he got the plum job.
Speaking today, January 16, during the launch of a book: “Working with Buhari: Reflections of A Special Adviser, Media, and Publicity (2015-2023)” which he wrote about the former Nigerian president, Adesina described his appointment as a “demonstration of God’s grace upon my life.
“It was a former Ekiti State governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, who told me how it happened.
“He said after President Buhari had emerged, they took three names to him as possible Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.
“He (Buhari) looked at the three names, brought my name from his breast pocket, circled my name, and signed in front of it. That was how it happened.
“To me, I have always told people that working with President Muhammadu Buhari is a demonstration of God’s grace in my life.
“From nowhere, without lifting a finger to push it, I was invited to assume the position of a Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.”
Femi Adesina, a veteran journalist and senior editor, served as chief spokesman to Buhari for eight years: between 2015 and 2023.
