Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has bagged a Love FM 104.5 Ace Leadership Award as part of its Merit Awards 2022. The award was presented to him today, August 10 by the management of radio station.
Presenting the award, the representative of Love FM, Ewuzie Anele Lilian, expressed the organization’s pride in the work of Adesina as a journalist, having got to the peak of his career through dint of hard work.
“We are happy to identify with you because we know how you started. You rose through the ladder and here you are, still doing the media work. We know it is not everybody that will accept what you are doing.”
She assured the Presidential spokesman of the support of Love FM despite some reports that suggest otherwise.
“Sometimes we criticize you, we learnt that from you anyway. Before you got here, you were criticizing others. We have come to say congratulations despite all that has happened. “We are proud at the level you have reached and pray that God will sustain you and give you more wisdom to deal with the challenges associated with the job.”
This was even as Femi Adesina expressed appreciation to the organization for considering him worthy of the award.
He asked media practitioners to partner with the government to move the country forward instead of being adversaries, saying: “what you find in the media at times is that they are so adversarial to government, which does not have to be. This is our country and we don’t have any other one.
“If they send the country into a tailspin through too much criticism, even the media won’t be able to do its work. So, we should always bear in mind that it is our country and whatever we make of it is what we get.”
