The eagle has landed!
That was how an elated Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari, 2015-2023, announced the arrival of his hot, fresh and smoking book on his principal to The Crest in the small hours of Monday.
The book, aptly titled, Working With Buhari: Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, is a 488-page spellbinder that would set many Nigerians talking in the years to come.
The Crest has the rare privilege of sighting a copy of the well-produced book.
Working With Buhari: Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity is a one-stop shop about the man, Buhari, his achievements in office, and some never-before-told stories of the inner workings of that administration.
Little wonder the author, Femi Adesina, proud recipient of the national award of the Officer of the Order of the Niger, OON, enthusiastically announced the arrival on his Facebook page, later Monday morning, in the following words:
AS E DEY HOT
Copies of my memoir, Working With Buhari:Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023)have finally rolled off the press. They have been delivered, steaming hot.
It reminds me of the children’s book we read eons ago, in which a magic pot serves you whatever you command it to bring. Instanta.
“Magic pot, magic pot. Give me porridge piping hot.” And porridge comes, belching smoke.
Well, the book is here, ‘as e dey hot.’ The next is for you to lay hands on a copy, and get to know the essential Buhari, in flesh and blood.
For we cannot but say what we know, and write what we witnessed.
Soon and very soon, the book will be unveiled for your reading pleasure. The software of the man Buhari, and not only the iron and steel.
Please be on the lookout.
