Femi Adesina, media adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari has claimed that his principal personally rejected the motion to endorse him for 2019 during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This is contained in an article he release on Friday titled, ‘PMB: Just like the mills of the gods’.
Adesina lamented how the media made it look as though Buhari was embarrassed at the meeting.
He insisted that it was Buhari himself who signalled to those in attendance that the meeting should not talk about his 2019 ambition.
Adesina wrote: “I was there (APC NEC meeting). The atmosphere was friendly, almost convivial. At a point, someone moved a motion of confidence in the Buhari administration.
“The seconder, a former state governor, added to the motion, seeking an endorsement of the President as candidate for second term in 2019. As he raised the motion, I saw the President gesturing, with his two palms downwards.
