APC Chiefs ‘Force’ Senate President, Lawan, To Withdraw Juicy Appointment From Buhari’s Top Enemy

Dr. Festus Adedayo, who was appointed as the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, to the President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, on Tuesday, has been dropped.
A statement from the Office of the President of the Senate, on Thursday, in Abuja, said that it reviewed the appointment of Adedayo, and rescinded its earlier decision on it.
The statement was signed by Mohammed Isa, the Special Assistant to the Senate President, on Media and Publicity.
It said: “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.

“The Office wishes Mr. Adedayo the best in his future endeavours.’’
The dropping of Adedayo, may be connected with the pressure on the Senate Leadership to do so, following mounting criticisms from the All Progressives Congress, APC, Stakeholders, over his appointment.
A reliable source close to President of the Senate’s Office, revealed that the decision to drop Adedayo was reached on Wednesday night, in a meeting by key Officers of the Red Chamber.
The meeting was said to have held at the residence of the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, who chaired the session.
No sooner was the appointment of Adedayo, a PhD holder in Political Communications, was announced, did outcry and criticisms start pouring in, saying that, he was unsuitable for the position.

The outcry which was loud, especially on the social media, and was championed by the Buhari Media Organisation, BMO; and some members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, tagged Adedayo “anti-Buhari Media personality’’.
To press the matter home, the groups resorted to the re-broadcasting of some anti-government social media posts linked to Adedayo.
NAN confirmed that the Office of the Senate President has begun the process of finding a replacement for him.
A similar outcry is also trailing the re-appointment of four other Media Aides announced by Lawan, to serve him. The Aides also served his predecessor, Sen. Bukola Saraki.
The Aides include Mohammed Isa, Special Assistant on Media and Publicity; Olu Onemola, Special Assistant on New Media, and Tope Olowoeye, Senior Legislative Aide on Media and Publicity (Photography).

It was learnt that Lawan stood his ground on the Aides, saying that, he would retain them.
“The Senate concluded last night, that the SA Media, should be relieved of his appointment instantly, owing to public outcry.
“But, the Senate President is retaining all the other Media Aides already announced, against all pressures.
“He is already getting some recommendations for replacement of Adedayo from Media Consultants, subject to background checks”, the source said.
