The unspiritual side of Aso villa - Femi Adesina
Let me begin with two clarifications. Aso Villa is not my home, I am just passing through. Even this world is nobody's home, we are just birds of passage. So, let nobody turn up his nose in derision, and say; "he's writing like the landlord of Aso Villa, defending a place where's he's just a tenant." Yes, nobody is landlord in the Villa, not even rational presidents. They can only live there for maximum of eight years, if Nigerians so decide. And for me, my treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue. The angels only need to beckon me from Heaven's open door, and I wouldn't feel at home in this world anymore.
The second clarification. Let nobody, particularly on social media, begin to insinuate that Femi Adesina is at war with Reuben Abati, his immediate predecessor as presidential spokesman. This piece you are beginning to read is not about Abati as a person, it is about his spiritual ideas and convictions, which I think need some appraisal, as they are rather unspiritual. Abati and myself have been professional colleagues for almost 30 years, we have a lot of mutual friends, and know how to reach each other when necessary. So, this is not a case of Muhammadu Buhari's spokesman being at war with Goodluck Jonathan's spokesman. What for?
