The presidency has defended the performance of the Muhammadu Buhari administration since coming into power in 2015.
Speaking in a statement via his Facebook page titled ‘I MISS THE SOUTH EAST WE USED TO KNOW’, the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina rated the performance of the Buhari government high.
He stated that the current administration has left no region in the country untouched with its developmental projects, particularly in the area of infrastructure.
Adesina added however that no single leader can solve all the problems of the country, but can only do his best and hope others continue from there.
He said in the statement released on Thursday: “President Muhammadu Buhari has done a lot for the country, particularly in the area of infrastructure. And no region has been left behind. Not the North, or the South, and South East particularly.
“Two weeks ago, we had a chronicle of great works done, and being done in that part of the country on this page. No leader ever solves all the problems in a country. He will come, do his bit, and somebody else succeeds him, and continues. History will ultimately be kind to Buhari, in that he came, he saw, and conquered to the best of resources available.”
Reminiscing on the security challenges that have been ravaging the southeast in recent times, the presidential media aide prayed that evil will be defeated in the country.
“How I used to enjoy visits to South East in the past. How many times have I attended the Ezumezu (traditional homecoming) held in Igbere, in Abia State. How many Igbotonma (age grade retirement) have I attended, without looking over my shoulders. But not anymore. What has happened to our dear South East? What subsists there now is an evil wind that blows no good. May evil be defeated, and may the good old days return to all parts of our country. Amen x7,” he added.
