Senator Anthony Adefuye, a Third Republic senator and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday said that President Muhammadu Buhari is the best president in the history of Nigeria no matter the negative thing some Nigerians are saying
In an interview with DAILY INDEPENDENT, Adefuye also lambasted those saying former President Olusegun Obasanjo performed better than other Nigerian leaders, saying Obasanjo did almost nothing during his tenure from 1999 to 2007, especially in the South-West region.
According to him, Buhari is the one fixing most of the things that Obasanjo left untouched during his eight years reign.
Adefuye who also accused Obasanjo of selling national assets to private individuals also listed the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, railways and airlines as some of the things that Obasanjo never fixed which President Buhari has now turned around.
“President Buhari is someone I know who has been a military president before and now he is a democratic president. He wants to show the world that he is truly democratic. We all should give it to him. Let me tell you one thing, President Buhari is the best president Nigeria has ever had. No matter what people say about him, he still remains the best in the history of this country”.
“Some people are saying (Olusegun) Obasanjo. Which Obasanjo? Obasanjo koo, Obasanjo nii. When Obasanjo was president, the price of crude oil was $140 per barrel, he did not build a single rail in the South-West. So, what are they talking about? He didn’t do anything in the South-West. He didn’t even build the road that leads to Ota”.
“He seized the allocation of Lagos for almost two years. Even the Lagos-Ibadan expressway he didn’t do anything about it. It is Buhari that is ensuring that the road is rehabilitated now. It is Buhari that is building the Second Niger Bridge. It is Buhari that is building rail lines and bringing our airlines back”.
“All these were killed during Obasanjo’s regime. During Obasanjo’s regime, we sold all the national assets to individuals. So, what are these people mentioning Obasanjo’s name talking about? Buhari is one man who has spent Nigeria’s money for Nigeria”.
