The Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the President, Mr. Femi Adesina, is still ecstatic and the reason is understandable.
His son, Oluwatobi, a pilot with Arik Airline, flew him for the first time ever on Monday, June 19, 2017, from Lagos to Abuja.
It was no doubt a very memorable experience for the respected and renowned journalist, a one time Editor and Managing Director of The Sun Newspapers, that he immediately took to his Facebook page to pen the short story below on disembarking:
‘FATHER AND SON IN THE COCKPIT
On Monday, June 19, 2017, a day after Fathers Day, I had the privilege of being flown for the first time from Lagos to Abuja by my son, Oluwatobi Adesina, who is a pilot with Arik Airline. It was truly an extension of Fathers Day, as I had the privilege of sitting in the cockpit. Did I see anything as the Boeing 737 cruised through the azure sky? Not the foggiest thing. The wonders of our God, and of technology. To Him be all the glory.’
