Femi Adeshina has cleared the air and opened up on how President Buhari feels about the Igbo tribes in Nigeria. The media and publicity aide said the president does not in any way hate or detest the Igbo people.
Femi Adesina in his weekly column titled ‘Buhari & S’East: Arthur Eze nails it,’ said President Buhari during his 5 years as the president of Nigeria has funded “69 different projects being undertaken by the Federal Government in South East alone, all amounting to about N680 billion.”
He also took people back in time when Buhari ran for office in 2007, saying his running mate was an Igbo man, Chief Edwin Ume-Ezeoke who was the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, and also in 2003 when he picked the late Chuba Okadigbo as his running mate.
He added that when the former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme fell ill, “President Buhari arranged his evacuation abroad by air ambulance. When he eventually passed on, he was given a most befitting national burial. Do you do that for people you don’t like? Hardly.”
He continued by saying he “gives every man his due, every region what they deserve. Fairness to all.”
He lamented that revisionists are in their game of making the people believe that Buhari is “nepotistic, myopic, insular, and who would never appoint a non-Fulani into any position of substance.”
