Govs using Buhari as Excuse for their failure to deliver – Femi Adesina


Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), said some governors are in the habit of laying their failure to perform in office at the doorstep of his principal.

Adesina alleged this in an article titled, ‘Zulum Zooms In’, posted on his official Facebook page on Thursday.

In it, he wrote: “Some Governors think they can be heroes by antagonizing the President. If they owe salaries and pensions, once the month is ending, they begin to abuse the President, thinking their people would forget the outstanding salaries and pensions.

“When they have not built a single kilometer of road, it is Buhari. When infrastructure has decayed under them, it is Buhari. When they can’t secure the lives and property of the people they govern, it is Buhari.

“They play to the gallery, thinking they will receive applause from their people. No, the only sound the people hear is the rumbling from their bellies, due to hunger. And they know where their problems come from.”
