Punch papers reports that after President Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) leaves office on May 29, 2023, Nigerians will respect him, according to Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.
Beyond those who want to rewrite history and make Buhari’s rule famous for the wrong reasons, he claimed, fair Nigerians would remember his leader for many of his accomplishments.
This was revealed by Adesina in his weekly essay, “NG-CARES: HOW BUHARI QUIETLY ATTENDS TO NEEDS OF NIGERIANS,” where he listed the President’s accomplishments.
He said that Buhari has Nigerians’ best interests at heart and has diligently fought for the development of the nation with his “care and kindness to Nigerians”.
He believes that the numerous ways in which President Buhari has discreetly supported Nigerians will be appropriately documented in history.
“Some revisionists are hard at work, attempting to muddle the facts and erase the accomplishments of the Buhari government. But the truth floats in water like a cork. It floats more as you apply greater pressure.
“We will always be happy that the honest man was here, even after he retires to his hometown Daura in Katsina State. I refer to individuals who are reasonable but also happen to number in the millions,” he wrote.
“The judgment of history is usually the most durable,” Adesina continued, “and as President Muhammadu Buhari pounds anchor in less than three weeks, posterity will be fair and thus kind to him.
Adesina commented on several of Buhari’s speeches, saying, “These welfare initiatives reveal a window into the compassionate spirit of the President, a man some people have not cared to discern, examine, and decode.
They simply choose to remain stuck in the past, soaked in fanciful notions such, ‘Oh, he ruled as a military leader with an iron hand,’ and trapped there. He forced prisoners into custody. Through Decree 4, he put journalists in prison. He also had Decree 2, which granted him the authority to hold people in custody without end.
“No face at all. Since he is Fulani, he is a herdsman who encourages his followers to attack farmers. Religious zealot who rejects all other religions. True? False. And I ought to know. Why? Because of our eight years of intimate collaboration, I can confidently affirm that, despite popular belief and purposeful misinformation, I am familiar with Muhammadu Buhari.
