Femi Adesina, former Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, to the immediate past president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, has revealed what his biggest challenge was during the eight years he served in the past administration.
Adesina was speaking at a media chat organised by the Association of Veteran Journalists in Osogbo, Osun State, on Wednesday.
He lamented that he was constantly misquoted by a section of the media, but after he got acquainted with their antics, he was able to outgrow it by not letting it affect his job as the presidential media aide.
Adesina also said that the “media section” purposely wanted to make him an “enemy of the public.”
“My biggest challenge during the eight years that I served with former President Muhammadu Buhari was the fact that a section of the media deliberately quoted me out of context.
“I eventually grew out of it and got used to the antics. Even while I had a television interview, it was turned upside down in the papers deliberately to make me an enemy of the public, but I outgrew it and it did not affect my duty throughout my tenure”, he said.
