Femi Adesina – Why I laugh when they say Buhari is controlled by cabal


The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has countered Nigerians accusing the Nigerian leader of being controlled by some cabals in Aso Rock.

In a statement to mark the president’s 79th birthday, the presidential spokesman said Buhari has a mind of his own, stressing that he cannot be controlled by anyone.

According to Adesina, President Buhari delegates duties but does not delegate responsibilities to anybody.

Speaking on the lessons learnt from Buhari’s government so far, Adesina said, “the lessons are plenty. The man has a mind of his own. That’s why I laugh when they say a cabal is controlling him. Yes, he delegates a lot, but does he abdicate responsibilities? He takes decisions, and he’s not even afraid of taking tough ones.

“Unflappable, cool, calm, collected. Straight talker, no tongue-in-cheek. That’s why you can’t afford to spin anything on his behalf. Otherwise, he comes out one day and tells the truth. And you become damned as a liar.

“Capacity to forgive. How many times have I seen people who abused their father and mother on TV in the morning, coming to see him under the cover of darkness? And he’s all genial with them.

“He is all chummy when they should rather have left with black eyes”.
