The Governor of Kwara State, Abdul Rahman Abdul Razaq has lashed out at governors who have decided to denigrate President Buhari in the face of insecurity challenges.
According to him, Buhari is a prudent and diligent man and no matter what they say about Baba Buhari, nobody has accused him of embezzling money.
He also noted that the insecurity was already in play when he assumed office, all the local governments in Borno state except Maiduguri were controlled by terrorists.
In his words: “Most of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors rode on Buhari’s back to power. Even though we had our own ‘otoge’ in Kwara but he led the party amiably.
“So we are not going to sit and have people needlessly denigrate the leader of the country for no just reason. The man has been working.
“He has done exceedingly well and because he would not talk, the opposition is taking advantage of that to pull him and the country down. No, no patriot should allow that.
“When there was a lot of money in this country, it was mismanaged. But when baba came in, the money has dwindled. There is no money today but President Buhari has been able to manage that and he has been an effective manager of resources. What he has been doing is to manage the situation.
“The effect of COVID-19 has hit hard on global economy, not just Nigeria. It hit Nigeria very hard as the vast majority of us earn our wages daily. So the shutdown affected us more.
“No matter what they say about Baba Buhari, nobody has accused him of embezzling money. That is where it starts from. The man is prudent and diligent. He is making sure that things are done right in every sector.”
“In the area of security we have our challenges. But when baba came in, only Maiduguri was in the hands of the government of Nigeria, all the other local government areas of Borno state were practically in the hands of non state actors. But today things have changed.”
