Muhammadu Buhari, has said that he was misquoted by the media under the past administration for 8 years, making him an enemy of the public.emi Adesina, former Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, to the previous president,
The former Special Adviser made this statement at a media chat organised by the Association of Veteran Journalists in Osogbo, Osun State, on Wednesday,
He noted that after he got accustomed to the antics of the media, he was able to outgrow it by not letting such affect his job as the presidential media aide.
Adesina mentioned that the “media section” purposely wanted to make him an “enemy of the public”, hence they misquoted him often and flipped his words.
“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.
