Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, says he looks forward to his exit as presidential spokesman and that no one can determine what trajectory his life will take on after Buhari’s tenure ends in 2023.
In an article released today November 6 and titled, ‘We have different paths to tread in life,’ Adesina said “even life does not last forever”.He pointed out that only God knows his terminal time.
Adesina listed those who served as image-makers to different Nigerian leaders since 1976, noting that they all succeeded after office and that he is not going to be an exception. He also wrote about his professional odyssey from a reporter to the status of a newspaper editor-in-chief before his appointment by the President in 2015.
“On the very first day in my current office, I already handed over the last day to God. The last day would always come. Even life does not last forever.
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.
Those who served before me have all succeeded in their different ways, no matter what people choose to believe, or say of them. They served their principals faithfully. I will do same to mine. Nobody will determine what happens next. Only God will do. We have different paths to tread in life. And it is determined by the higher powers.” his article in part read
