Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, has come under several criticisms over his comment on the adoption of “major general” title for President Muhammadu Buhari by Punch Newspaper.

The Nigerian newspaper had resolved that Buhari will henceforth be addressed with his military title and his administration be referred to as a regime until it purges itself of ”contempt for the rule of law”.

Reacting to the editorial via his Twitter handle on Wednesday, Adesina said the newspaper was very correct as the president earned the title of major general.

He said, “If you decide to call him Major General, he wasn’t dashed the rank, he earned it. So, you are not completely out of order. The fact that you can do so is even another testimony to press freedom in Nigeria. ”


This comment sparked the reactions of some Nigerians as they accused Adesina of intentionally avoiding the real issue just so he could protect Buhari’s image at the country’s detriment.
