Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Nigerian President, Mr Femi Adesina in series of tweets released this evening clarified a recent statement credited to President Buhari while addressing the Nigerian Community in South Africa. The president was quoted by media reports to have said that at 72, there are limits to what he can do. Mr Adesina regretted that the president’s statement has been misinterpreted in the media to mean that “he was too old to cope with the demands of his office” and dismissed such insinuations.
