Meanwhile,the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said it was not his style to respond to those he described as “wailing wailers” in their private capacities.

He made the statement when asked for for his reaction to a statement credited to a former Minister of Education, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili, in which she described his (Adesina’s) recent statement as a “terribly indecorous press release.”

“I don’t respond to wailing wailers in their private capacities,” Adesina simply said .

The presidential spokesman had issued a statement on Friday saying the reported discussion between President Muhammadu Buhari and the World Bank Group President, Jim Yong Kim, was deliberately twisted by those who he said specialised in such acts.
