Former Presidential Spokesperson Femi Adesina has revealed that the media purposely misquoted former President Muhammadu Buhari’s words while he was in office.
Adesina, who appeared at a media discussion organized by the Association of Veteran Journalists in Osogbo on Wednesday, claimed that some media outlets purposely pitted him against members of the public simply because he was in government.
“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.
