President Muhammadu Buhari has named journalist and social commentator Tolu Ogunlesi his Special Adviser on New Media…just like Reno Omokri was to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan in the past administration.
Tolu has since undergone security screening and his appointment is expected to be announced in few days.
Mr Tolu, an ardent witter user, played major role in campaigning for President Buhari during the 2015 general elections.
Before his appointment, Tolu was a freelance writer. He writes for various publications, mostly abroad, and sometimes writes for Premium Times.
Mr Tolu is a 2 time CNN Multichoice African Journalism Awards winner. He won the award in 2009 and 2013.
Congrats to him
