The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Monday stated that Nigerians should have understood the way Buhari “prefers to do things” having spent two years in office.
Adesina, who spoke when he featured on a Channels Television programme, Sunrise Daily, categorically called on Nigerians to take his principal the way he is.
His words, “The style of our president is what you have seen on display. By now, two years after he came into office, I’m sure that we should understand him.
“We should know the kind of person he is, we should know how he prefers to do things. So, that is the way the president is. We elected him willingly and we have seen that this is the way he is, so let’s take him the way he is.”
The presidential spokesman also shed more light on the meeting some governors of the All Progressives Congress, APC, had with the President in London on Sunday afternoon.
He said, “Governor Okorocha who is the head of the APC governors was in the delegation. We spoke on the phone and he gave me details. The president spoke with each person, state after state, asking of developments of their states.
“He spoke with the minister of transportation on the development in his sector. He must have also spoken with the party chairman on the development in the party on the forthcoming convention and all that.”
When reminded that there might be concerns that his information is got from a third party (Okorocha), the President’s spokesman said: “Imagine if there was no information at all, this is third party information quite all right.
“It is information that Nigerians are glad at, there has been lots of rejoicing in the country since yesterday. So it’s something we appreciate.”
