Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr. Femi Adesina has said the fact that Nigerians elected a president doesn’t mean they have to order the President around.
Mr Adesina made this statement when he appeared on Nigeria Info FM, while responding to a suggestion by a caller who asked him to ensure that president Buhari holds a media chat with men of the Nigerian press.
In response to this, Mr Adesina said;
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
