Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, has revealed that he will become a farmer once his boss’ administration elapses.

Adesina made the revelation in a Facebook post, when he received the All Farmers Association of Nigeria (Edo State Chapter) in his office.

“When I finish in government, by the mercies of God, I intend to return to active media work and also be a farmer. May God make it happen. Amen.

“It was then a big surprise to me when I got notification from the All Farmers Association of Nigeria (Edo State Chapter), saying they were coming to make me a patron of the group. I asked myself: ‘how did they know I was planning to go into farming? They must have seen tomorrow,’” he said in the post.

Adesina started his career at the Vanguard Newspapers as a features writer before moving to the defunct National Concord Newspapers.

He was a pioneer staff member of The Sun Newspaper where he became the editor, and later the managing director and editor-in-chief, a position he quitted in 2015 when he started working with the president.
