YOU CAN NOT SEE WHAT BUHARI IS DOING, BECAUSE YOU ARE BLIND – FEMI ADESINA
President Muhammadu Buhari has touched Nigeria in diverse ways, despite the myriad of challenges in the economic, security, political, social, and many more sectors, but some of you still pretend not to see just because you have become deliberately blind, said Femi Adesina
The Special Adviser to President Muhamadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina disclosed this on Thursday, May 21 in a post on his Facebook account he titled; 'Facts are stubborn things'.
The spokesman has been in news lately trolling Nigerians following comments made by citizens against Presidency which he described “not appealing”.
Femi Adesina while speaking on the good deeds the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has been able to achieve so far, said the Presidency and his team are steadily and painstakingly retooling Nigeria.
According to the spokesman, next week, the Muhammadu Buhari administration would be exactly five years in office. Four full years of first-team and one year accomplished in the second term of four years.
Femi Adesina said the Governance of his boss is one of the best which has not been appreciated by some Nigerians due to political, ethnic, religious, and language grudges.
He noted that, even though Buhari comes from a small town “Daura” not even a major city, he wants to be recorded in history as the man of greatest impact in Nigeria.
“Shall it be said that what Napoleon could not do, has been done by that simple, unassuming man from Daura? Can anything good come out of Nazareth? Daura of all places. That small place. Not a man from a major city. And he wants to be recorded in history as the man who turned Nigeria right side up. They resent it out of panic.”
While magnifying the “superb” jobs done by the Buhari Administration, he noted the construction of the second Niger Bridge which no past Governance laid a block to begin construction. He said many administrations had made unfulfilled political promises on the project.
Femi Adesina expressed his joy over the developments, described it as an applaudable action taken by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“I saw the second Niger bridge, and it kindled the joy kiln in my heart. But you know what? Some people pass on the 1965 Niger Bridge, see the new one in the works, and just pretend not to. Some others see it, and they are angry, will this Daura man succeed where others have failed?”
Adesina pointed at the construction of the Owerri Interchange, also another project under the administration of his boss. According to Femi Adesina, the Owerri interchange is the 1.6 kilometers bridge and 10.3 kilometers highway being built by Julius Berger, at Onitsha / Owerri road, Obosi Junction.
Adesina gave hearty cheers to Babajide Raji Fashola (SAN), the Minister for Works and Housing for brilliant support he has been giving to the Buhari’s administration.
“The second Niger Bridge is projected to be completed in the lifetime of this administration, in fact by February 2022. The man from Daura will go into records as the person that did it, with Fashola as the midwife.”
Speaking further, Femi Adesina hinted that the Buhari Administration sees Agriculture as a major sector of the economy which should not be underrated. He said his boss has invested in agriculture because of his love for Nigerians.
“Nigeria is on the verge of food self-sufficiency. We do not depend solely on the importation of food, unlike the past.
“What if President Buhari had not invested in agriculture right from 2015? How would we have survived at a time like this, ‘COVID-19 Outbreak’? We run to the sea, the sea would be boiling, we run to the bush, the bush would be burning, we run to the rocks, the rocks would be cracking. Where would we have run to?
"Yet people say: we can’t even see what the Government is doing. Yes, willfully blind people will not see. But facts are stubborn things”
Adesina said that corruption and insecurity are being fought in every sector of the economy, adding that external reserves are growing at a time of economic crisis.
