President Buhari Will Not Resign – Femi Adesina

Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, has said his principal will not resign and that those asking him to, are “merely expressing their opinions.”

Adesina stated this at an interactive session with journalists, at the launch of Olusegun Adeniyi’s new book, ‘Against The Run of Play,’ on Friday in Lagos.

His words; “Saying the president should resign is an opinion but don’t forget that 15 million people elected the president so if one or two people express their opinion, will their opinion override that of 15 million people that voted for him?

“Those who are expressing their opinion have rights to their opinion.”

On Buhari’s health, he said: “There is no need for apprehension, God spared the president the first time. Remember he said that he has never been as ill as he was before. The same God that spared him will also ensure that he returns to full health. Nigerians prayed and God answered, Nigerians are still praying and God will still answer.”

Buhari didn't attend the Jummat prayer in Aso Villa on Friday, after failing to convene the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting for the third consecutive week.
