The Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina, has said he planned to go into farming when his principal leaves office by May 2023.
Both Adesina and Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media, have been criticised by many Nigerians because of the unpopular statements they churned out in defending government’s failures and how they also attacked critics of the Buhari government.
In the post titled, “They have seen tomorrow”, he said, “When I finish in government, by the mercies of God, I intend to return to active media work and also be a farmer. May God make it happen. Amen.
“It was then big surprise to me when I got notification from the All Farmers Association of Nigeria (Edo State Chapter), saying they were coming to make me a Patron of the group. I asked myself: “how did they know I was planning to go into farming? They must have seen tomorrow.”
“The farmers added: “We wish to congratulate you as you are being appointed Patron based on your antecedents. We say big congratulations, and look forward to see you rising higher.
“This is a surprising honor. I could only promise the farmers that I would continue to serve the President, and my country to the best of my ability.”
