“His response: “I’ll miss good people that we have worked together in the past eight years, like some of you here.”

Meanwhile, Adesina also highlighted his experience working with President Buhari and how he would be signing off as a fulfilled man.

He said:

“… My job is done, my bags are packed, and I’m ready to go. When I step out of the Presidential Villa on Friday, May 26, 2023, it would be the last as an insider. If I ever return, it would be as a visitor.
“My name would have to be first sent to the lobby station, I would go through security screening, before being granted access. And that is a place I’d driven in and out from freely in the past eight years. Yes, the only thing constant in life is change. I leave happily, fulfilled, and I say there’s a lot of good in goodbye.”
