I was deliberately misquoted for eight years -Femi Adesina

Femi Adesina

Femi Adesina, former Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, to the erstwhile president, Muhammadu Buhari, stated that he was misquoted for eight years while serving under the past administration.

Adesina made the statement at a media chat organised by the Association of Veteran Journalists in Osogbo, Osun State, on Wednesday,

He noted that after he got acquainted with the antics of the media, he was able to outgrow it by not letting such affect his job as the presidential media aide.

Adesina stated 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.
