Mr. Femi Adesina, special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, has said that Nigerians will be glad with President Muhammadu Buhari’s honesty after the expiration of his tenure.
Adesina who made this known in an article published on Thursday night applauded some of the policies that Buhari had implemented during his time as Nigerian president.
He said Buhari was able to achieve several socioeconomic developments due to his honesty and love for the Nigerian people.
“Some revisionists are busy, trying to obfuscate issues, and obliterate the achievements of the Buhari administration,” he said.
“But truth is like cork in water. The more you press it down, the more it stays afloat. After he retires to his native Daura, in Katsina State, we will always be glad that the honest man was here. I mean those who are fair minded, but who happen to number in scores of millions.”
According to Adesina, some people have not bothered to understand the President and therefore assume the worst of him.
He said, “These welfarist interventions give a window into the kind soul of the President, a man some people have not bothered to discern, dissect and decipher. They just deliberately stay in the trenches of the past, soused and marooned in apocryphal beliefs: oh, he ruled with an iron fist as military leader.
“He herded people into jail. He imprisoned journalists through Decree 4. He also had Decree 2, which gave him power to detain anyone indefinitely. No human face. He’s a Fulani, and therefore, a herdsman, who supports his people to attack farmers. Religious bigot, who does not recognize any other faith. True? False.
“And I should know. Why? Because I’ve worked with him closely for 8 years, and I can say I know the man Muhammadu Buhari, apart from the myth and the deliberate misconceptions,” he wrote.
“History will adequately record the many ways in which President Buhari has quietly cared for Nigerians, but today, let’s look at the one called NG-CARES, silently attending to the needs of millions of our countrymen and women.”
