Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Mhammadu Buhari, has said that Nigerians were lucky to have a leader like his principal.
Adesina made the remark while dismissing attempts to pitch him against his principal and Peoples Democratic P Party, PDP comment, Describing the President’s Cabinet as chaotic and cancerous.
In a post on his Facebook, Adesina wrote: “A quote from mischief-makers is making the rounds, ascribed to me. I just dey laugh.
“I am a Buharist any day, no apologies, and I believe the president and I believe the president is leading the country well. In fact, we are lucky to him at a time like this.All attempts to demonize me will fail.”
Just a few days ago, a former Presidential Adviser, Tanko Yakassai had passed a vote of no confidence on Buhari.Yakassai had described Buhari as an incompetent leader who can’t fix the problems in the country.
Meanwhile, The Peoples Democratic Party alleged that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Executive Council has become cancerous, disorganized, chaotic, and incapable of driving an organized, result-oriented system and as such should be disbanded.
The party, in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said its position was predicated on the alleged degenerated hostilities among officials in the Buhari Presidency, including presidential aides, ministers and heads of agencies. The party said the alleged hostilities had further “exposed a scandalous breakdown” of the administration’s central command system. The PDP alleged the situation was a mark of failure by the Presidency and the All Progressives Congress to provide organized leadership for the nation.
“This is indeed shocking that the acrimony had sunk to a situation where the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, reportedly evicted the staff of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission from their allocated office, with guns, while the Chairman of the Commission, Hon. Abike Dabiri, was on official assignment with the President.
