One of the ministerial nominees, Adamu Adamu, revealed on Wednesday that he worked as the speechwriter of President Muhammadu Buhari between 1994 and 1999.
The ministerial nominee said this while responding to questions from senators during the screening of ministerial nominees.
Adamu was also a former minister during Buhari’s first term in office.
He said: “I started working as speechwriter to President Buhari in 1994 up till 1999. I later became his unofficial speechwriter until he became president. Now that he is president, I think it is a collective responsibility and it doesn’t affect my job,” he said.
The former minister of education revealed also that the ministry witnessed a reduction in the number of out-of-school children in the country during his leadership.
