‘Who Won?’ — Femi Adesina Raises Poser For Obasanjo In Book About Buhari

Former special adviser to ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina, has reignited his feud with former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his new book titled “Working with Buhari: Reflections of A Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023),” using the number of foreign trips made by both leaders as his ammunition.


Adesina attempted to deflect criticism of Buhari’s trips by highlighting Obasanjo’s travel record. He tackled the frequent criticism Buhari faced for his numerous overseas trips, including those for medical reasons.


As of December 2022, reports indicated Buhari spent at least 225 days abroad on medical trips during his eight-year tenure.


At the height of the trips, speculations and misinformation about Buhari’s health became rampant, with some claiming he was replaced by a body double.
