Dr. Reuben Abati, PhD, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Goodluck Jonathan is back.
Sabinews.com ran into the erudite gentleman who bagged his PhD at 26 before becoming Nigeria’s most read columnist at a family friend’s in Akoka, Lagos.
Abati who declined a request for an interview however allowed that “I cannot comment on Buhari because anything I say could be interpreted as sour grapes, but I would rather play the devil’s advocate.”
Pressed to comment on the president’s performance so far, Dr. Abati would only volunteer a non-committal “it is not easy to govern Nigeria.”
He told sabinews.com that he is currently on vacation fresh from a stint at Oxford University where he took an Advanced Certificate course in Management and Leadership. Abati said his take away from Oxford is that education has moved into what he described as “poly-valent intelligence where lecturers must possess multi-disciplinary expertise.”
Looking chubby and relaxed, Dr. Abati who insisted he is on vacation said he had not made up his mind on what to do next. “I am on vacation. I have spent one week already since I came back from Oxford sleeping, eating and resting. I am not sure whether I will go back to writing or teaching or maybe writing a book. Writing a book will demand some measure of discipline on my part.”
