Buhari is a honest Fulani man, deliberately misunderstood by some people - Adesina

In a recent conversation with journalists in London, Nigeria's President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), expressed what he will miss the most after his tenure comes to an end on May 29, 2023. According to his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President stated that he would miss the "good people" he had the opportunity to work with during his regime.

Adesina, in his weekly article titled 'the good in goodbye,' shared the President's sentiments and reflected on his own time serving in the administration. He emphasized that he had carried out his duties to the best of his abilities and was leaving the Presidential Villa as a fulfilled man.

As Adesina prepares to step out of the Presidential Villa for the last time, he acknowledged that he would now be considered an outsider. If he were to return, he would need to go through the necessary security protocols like any other visitor. Adesina acknowledged the inevitability of change and expressed his contentment with bidding farewell, stating, "I leave happily, fulfilled, and I say there's a lot of good in goodbye."

The presidential spokesperson also announced that this edition of his weekly column, 'From the Inside,' would be one of the last, with only one more to follow in the next week. He hinted at his future plans, mentioning that he would be writing from the outside, on a different platform. Adesina expressed gratitude for the opportunity to serve and stated that he had no regrets, as he had been commended by his principal. He concluded, "We came, we served, and have been commended by our master. Well done, good and faithful servants."

Continuing his reflections, Adesina acknowledged that serving Muhammadu Buhari, whom he described as an honest Fulani man, had come with its share of challenges. He noted that some people deliberately misunderstood the President, labeling him as a jihadist, a nepotist, and a Fulani herdsman. Despite facing criticism from friends, family members, and even members of his church, Adesina remained loyal to the President. He defended Buhari's character, insisting that he was the opposite of the negative portrayal many believed. Adesina expressed his peaceful resignation from engaging with those who refused to change their opinions and praised the new friendships he had formed with like-minded individuals who shared his love for Buhari as a patriot and a good man.

As Adesina prepares to conclude his time in the administration, he leaves with a sense of fulfillment, cherishing the relationships he formed with those he describes as "good people." While acknowledging the misunderstandings and challenges faced, he believes there is still good in bidding farewell. As Nigeria enters a new chapter with a different administration, only time will tell what lies ahead for Adesina and the legacy of President Buhari.
