A Nigerian journalist and Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina has said the fact that Nigerians elected a president doesn’t mean they have to order the President around. He said this when he appeared on Nigeria Info FM today May 5.
Adesina made the statement while responding to a caller, Mr Ibikunle, who asked him to ensure President Buhari holds a media chat with men of the Nigerian press.
“I just want to encourage Mr Ibikunle not to continue to sound like a broken record. When the COVID thing started, everyone was like the President should talk to us. He has had three National broadcast within a month. What else do they want? What else do they want? Some people think because you elected a President or you did not elect you, you must lead your President by the nose.
It doesn’t happen. The fact that you have elected a man does not mean then you begin to order him around. The President will do what is good for the country at any given time” he said
