Presidency Reacts After Punch Newspaper Blasted Buhari

The Presidency has reacted to Punch Newspaper's publication that henceforth it will address President Buhari as Major General.

In a statement made available to Sephorahnews on Wednesday by Special Adviser On Media To President Buhari, Femi Adesina said there nothing wrong with that because It is a rank the President attained by dint of hard work before he retired from the Nigerian Army.


Presidency noted that today, constitutionally, President Buhari is also Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.

The statement reads,


"A newspaper says it will henceforth address President Muhammadu Buhari by his military rank of Major General. Nothing untoward in it. It is a rank the President attained by dint of hard work before he retired from the Nigerian Army. And today, constitutionally, he’s also Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces."

"All over the world, just as in our country, a large number of retired military officers are now democrats. It does not make those who didn’t pass through military service better democrats than them."

"Rather than being pejorative, addressing President Buhari by his military rank is another testimony to free speech and freedom of the press, which this administration (or regime, if anyone prefers: it’s a matter of semantics) has pledged to uphold and preserve."
