The President of the Senate Ahmad Lawan has dropped the appointment of Dr Festus Adedayo, as his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.
In a statement on Thursday in Abuja by the Special Assistant to the Senate President on Media and Publicity, Mohammed Isa says that the office has reviewed the appointment of Dr Adedayo as a special adviser, Media and Publicity to the president of the Senate.
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 endeavors.’’
The dropping of Adedayo, according to a report by NAN may not be unconnected with pressure on the Senate leadership to do so following mounting criticisms from All Progressives Congress stakeholders over the appointment.
Dr Festus Adedayo was appointed as Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President of the Senate on Tuesday.
