The President of Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan has withdrawn the appointment of Festus Adedayo, a columnist.
Recall that the senate president had appointed Adedayo as his special adviser on media and publicity and also retained Olu Onemola and Tope Olowoyeye, former aides of Bukola Saraki, his predecessor.
But in a statement on Thursday, Mohammed Isa, special assistant on media to the senate president, said Lawan had decided to rescind Adedayo’s appointment.
“The office of the President of the Senate has reviewed the appointment of Mr. Festus Adedayo as Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the President of the Senate and decided to rescind its decision on the appointment, and wishes Mr. Adebayo the best in his future endeavours,” Isa said.
Some supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had kicked against the appointments.
On Thursday morning, a group known as APC stakeholders had accused the senate president of rewarding enemies of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
