Sun Newspapers MD Femi Adesina May be Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media & Publicity



Femi Adesina

Reports currently circulating online state that president-elect Muhammadu Buhari may have appointed Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief of The Sun newspapers, Femi Adesina, as his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.

According to ThisDay, although Adesina’s announcement is yet to be formally announced, it has been confirmed, and Buhari’s team is waiting on some formalities to be carried out before making a formal announcement.

The report describes Adesina as “a prolific writer and tested journalist, Adesina started his career at the Vanguard Newspapers as a features writer before later moving to the defunct National Concord Newspapers. He is a pioneer staff of The Sun newspaper where he became the editor, and later the managing director and editor-in-chief, a position he will be quitting for the new assignment.”

    Number 1 lesson to be learnt from the Abati experience, you don’t have respond to everything which is said or written about your boss, set the records straight and move on. Sometimes Silence is golden.

    If this is true then again I have to give it to Buhari and his team cause this Adesina guy let his news paper run malicious campaigns against Buhari with all the death wishes.
    Well as they say Buhari is a president irrespective of your past sins provided you got what it takes.

      That was my first thought exactly. Sun and vanguard were anti apc in their editorials. This is a real surprise. Don’t know much about him, but I am sure he may have some other attributes or credentials that qualifies him. We shall be watching…this will be the first of many to be announced for the new administration.

    As long as it hasn’t been confirmed, I don’t believe. The Sun was heavily slanted against Buhari during the elections and why go with a Sun Man when the Nation is there?

    Though to be fair Adesina was a fervent Buhari supporter. I’ll still take this with a grain of salt.

      what’s “supporter” got to do with it? Abati was not a GEJ “supporter” and did a fine job.

      oops, some will beat me.
