Former Special Adviser to Ex President
Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, will on 1 September, 2023 assume the position of Executive Vice Chairman at The Sun Newspaper.

Mr Adesina, who served as the Managing Editor and Editor-in-Chief of the newspaper before his appointment as presidential spokesperson, told newsmen in an exclusive interview in his last working day, about the new appointment approved by the company’s founder, Orji Kalu, a Senator.

“I came from The Sun newspaper. I was the MD/Editor-in-Chief (of the publishing company). And when I wanted to leave, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu said, ‘Don’t resign. You may get to the government and you don’t like it. You can always come back. Or, you may get to the government and stay eight years; you can always come back. I’m going to make you the Executive Vice Chairman of the company.’ Not only did he say it, he issued me the letter.
Yes, I have the letter”, Mr Adesina said in the interview.

Our Correspondent learnt that the long period to start the new job is to allow Mr Adesina “enjoy a well-deserved rest, having been unable to go on leave throughout the eight years he served as the ex-President’s spokesman.”

Checks revealed that the former presidential aide intends to go to “a quiet place somewhere in the world to write his memoirs”.

Mr Adesina was appointed Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) by ex-President Buhari on 31 May, 2015.
He had earlier served as the President of the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE).
