What Sultan of Sokoto told me during my first week in office – Femi Adesina

Mr Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity has disclosed a conversation he had with the Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar during his first week in office.

Adesina in an article titled, “THE FINAL GALLOP HOME”, said the Sultan of Sokoto had told him that the job of Media Adviser does not attract appreciation from Nigerians, citing previous occupants of the position.

His Eminence, however, told Adesina that his tenure would be different from that of his predecessors.

According to Adesina, while some Nigerians are currently unhappy about his preparation to quit the office on May 29, wailers are set to see him leave.

He said, “In my very first week as Media Adviser, the Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, had visited the Villa, and met me along the walkway to the President’s office.

“We had been acquainted for many years before then and he usually called me by my email. And he said: ‘Kulikulii, you have come to do a very thankless job. That’s the way it has been for your predecessors, but with you, it won’t be so.’

“And I’ve not stopped saying amen to that prayer for 8 years, and no low person will stop me from that amen chorus”.
