The Crest can now exclusively reveal that the memoir of Chief Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhmmadu Buhari (2015-2023), will be officially presented to the public in Abuja on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.
The author revealed this exclusively to The Crest live and direct from Daura, Katsina State, Monday, shortly after the former President chose the date and granted him approval to commence planning towards the big launch.
The public presentation of the former Special Adviser’s 488-page memoir is expected to attract a long list of who-is-who in Nigeria to the nation’s capital.
The book, Working With Buhari: Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023), rolled off the press, last month, and was delivered hot, fresh and smoking to the author on Tuesday, November 26, 2023, in Lagos.
Adesina, a proud recipient of the national award of the Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON), enthusiastically announced the delivery of his new baby on his Facebook wall this way:
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.
Well, now that the big masquerade, former President Muhammadu Buhari, has now chosen a date for the big launch, the nation waits in passionate anticipation of the day of delivery of the elephant.
