ABUJA, Nigeria – Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, has insisted he will continue to succeed after he leaves the role.
Adesina stated this in an article on Friday titled, ‘We have different paths to tread in life’.
He claimed that some of his detractors were making veiled threats, but made it clear that nobody could determine his destiny beyond 2023.
Adesina listed those who served as spokespersons to the nation’s heads of state since 1976, noting that they all succeeded after office and his is not going to be an exception.
“Why have I decided to write this piece? The ill will, malediction I hear from some tiny, envious quarters. He is now anti-people, because he’s S.A to the President. He will go down. He will come back to meet us, unheralded, unsung. He will be uncelebrated.
“Really? I dey laff. Who are they talking about. Me? No. It can’t be me, because my destiny was long hidden in Christ and in God.”
He added that, “we have different paths to tread in life. And it is determined by the higher powers.”
Adesina began his career as a journalist with Radio Lagos, before moving to Vanguard Newspapers.
He later joined The Sun Newspaper, leaving his role as editor-in-chief to be sworn-in as Buhari’s media aide on August 31, 2015.
