The Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has absolved his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari from criticism that the President’s ruling style had contributed to the division in the country.
Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, on Sunday, heavily criticised Buhari over insecurity, corruption, and division in Nigeria, NewsWireNGR had reported.
Kukah made his complaints known in his Easter Message on titled, ‘To mend a broken nation: The Easter metaphor’.
He said,”Our individual hearts are broken. Our family dreams are broken. Homes are broken. Churches, Mosques, and infrastructure are broken. Our educational system is broken. Our children’s lives and future are broken. Our politics is broken. Our economy is broken. Our energy system is broken. Our security system is broken. Our Roads and Rails are broken. Only corruption is alive and well,” the message read in part.
In a response to Kukah’s criticism of Buhari’s regime on Monday, the presidential spokesman said it was surprising that those who are guilty of creating division with mouths in Nigeria are the ones accusing the President of the same crime they committed.
In a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, Adesina wrote, “Those who divided Nigeria with their mouths, with evil, unguarded speaking, are the ones now accusing President Buhari. How sad! Their wicked intentions shall not come to pass.”
