Following the media outcry that met the appointment of Festus Adebayo, a strong critic of President Muhammadu Buhari, as the spokesman of Senate President Ahmed Lawan, his appointment has been withdrawn by the Senate president.
This move has drawn further backlash from Nigerians who have fired shots at the Senate President for not being a man of his own.
What Nigerians are saying:
He is not his own man. It proves he is going to be controlled by the party and presidency in making decisions.
