Prominent columnist, Festus Adedayo, has spoken for the first time, since the Senate President Ahmad Lawan, rescinded his appointment.
We reports that Lawan took the decision, barely 48 hours after appointing Adedayo as Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.
This came after some supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) kicked against the appointment.
On Thursday morning, a group known as APC stakeholders accused Lawan of rewarding President Muhammadu Buhari’s enemies.
They had cited some articles, in which he criticised Buhari and some of his policies.
“Of a truth, I am a venomous critic of President Muhammadu Buhari, with no apologies. Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Adams Oshiomhole, Ibikunle Amosu, Bukola Saraki and several others have been on the receiving end of the unkind temper of my pen.
“What those who are vilifying me for always writing against government should have done was to rise from their laziness and conduct an x-ray of my writing. In my close to 20 years of public sphere intervention …
I believe that government should reflect the highest moral echelon of society and those who run it should make covenant of chastity and fidelity with themselves,” Adedayo said in a statement.
He also said he would not bear grudges against those who made him lose the job.
Adedayo added that Lawan “will be my model of a good Nigerian forever” and that “Nigerian politicians had a lot to learn from that gentleman and his politics of blindness to tribe and political party affiliation”.
