VIDEO: You can’t order President Buhari around to speak to Nigerians – Femi Adesina says | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


President Muhammadu Buhari’s media aide, Femi Adesina, has said it is not possible for Nigerians to order the President around.

While speaking during an interview on Nigeria Info FM on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, Adesina defended Buhari’s distant style of direct communication with Nigerians.

After a caller on the programme asked him when the president will subject himself to a media chat, Adesina said the president cannot be led around by the people.

He said,

“He has had three national broadcasts in about a month. What else do they want?

“Some people think because whether they elected a president or didn’t elect him, 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 continue to do whatever is good for the country at any given time.”

Another caller queried Mr Adeshina regards why the presidential broadcasts of President Buhari were always pre-recorded, in a sharp defence again, Mr Adeshina said
"Not all presidential broadcasts are always LIVE, Infact most of the presidential broadcasts are not rarely LIVE"

Some other callers also accused the presidential spokesman of speaking to Nigerians arrogantly on a national live broadcast, a particular caller, Oreoluwa criticized Mr Adeshina for saying a caller was "sounding like a broken record", while another was being "likened to a tissue paper"

  1. What a complete waste of space and time. People get so drunk on power and they belief they are irreplaceable. You can easily tell that this guy is so arrogant as a person and putting him in a place of power is really dangerous as we can see.

  2. This man is so carried away by the paraphnelia of power that he forgot that nothing last for ever.

  3. See his pot-belle he has eaten enough to get intoxicated by the little power given to him. He should remember people that were there before him has now gone back to where they belong. God dey oooh
