Femi Adesina, the former spokesperson for President Muhammadu Buhari, has revealed that his statements during his tenure were frequently misrepresented by the media.
During a recent media discussion organized by the Association of Veteran Journalists in Osogbo, Adesina explained that certain media organizations intentionally portrayed him in a negative light while he was in government, fostering division between him and 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.
