Buhari Better Than Awolowo, Zik Comment: My Statement Was Twisted - Femi Adesina

Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, has cleared air on the statement credited to him, alleging that President Muhammadu Buhari was better than late Nationalists and heroes, in Obafemi Awolowo and Nnamdi Azikiwe.

Adesina made clarifications to the statement while speaking to POLITICS NIGERIA correspondents on Thursday.

According to Adesina, President Buhari is possibly the most dependable politicians the country has seen in recent times, with an attractive force that draws people to him in droves.

The presidential aide said that was the idea he was trying to advance last time out, blaming that an illiterate journalist twisted his statement to mean President Buhari was better than Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Aminu Kano, among other Nigerian heroes.

Unfortunately, he succeeded in his evil adventure by generating several backlashes against me, but I leave things in the hands of God, adding that everyone must stand before the judgement seat of God to account for our actions, including all forms of lie against a fellow man. At that time, our political and ethnic affiliations, as well as profession would no longer count.
