The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to president Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adeshina, has noted that Nigerians can’t order the President around.
The President’s spokesperson stated this during an interview with ‘Nigeria Info’s Morning Crossfire programme.
He added that the President will continue to do what is best for Nigerians.
According to Adesina: “The fact that you have elected a man does not mean then you begin to order him around.”
“Some people think because whether you elected the President or you didn’t elect the President, you must lead your President by the ‘nose’; it does not happen.”
“The President will do whatever is good for the country at any given time.”
Adesina also spoke on why the president has refused to follow the footstep of his predecessors by holding a presidential media chat.
He further stated that Buhari has the right not to hold presidential media chat like his predecessors because it’s a matter of style.
“The fact that some other Presidents in the past did what is called the media chat, does not mean every President must do it.”
“It is a matter of style if this President decides not to have a media chat like his predecessors, it is his right,” Adesina added.
