The Special Advisor to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina has given insight into why President Muhammadu Buhari chose to supervise the petroleum ministry, explaining that it was because the buck stops at his table at the end of the day.
The presidential spokesman made this known when he featured on Kakaaki, an Africa Independent Television, AIT, programme, in response to a question that wondered whether the President has been unable to find someone with honour, integrity, truth to head the ministry after over three months in office.
According to Adesina, “Don’t forget that the buck stops at the President’s table. At the end of his administration, it is going to be called the Buhari administration and not the name of any minister.
“Therefore, it is very important that what the President feels would make a difference in the country is what he does. At the end of the day, that administration would be rated with his name and not any other name,” he stated.
Asking what the President would be bringing to the table if he is going to supervise the petroleum ministry, the spokesman noted that his principal, “has been Minister of Petroleum about 32 years ago. That is a lot of experience. Those were years that things were done fairly properly in this country.”
While pointing out that there was nothing wrong with recycling past leaders, he asked: “What is wrong with recycling if that person has something he is bringing to the table? Recycling would be wrong if that person is adding no value. But if he is adding value, what is wrong with recycling? I tell you that this is one appointment, if you can call it so, that will bring a lot of value to that ministry,” Adesina stated.
