Governors attack Buhari to escape paying salaries, pension – Femi Adesina
The presidency has accused some Nigerian governors of deliberately attacking President Muhammadu Buhari in order to divert attention away from their employees’ monthly remuneration and pension.
Femi Adesina, President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, made the accusations in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, saying the governors blame President Buhari for everything that goes wrong in their states.
“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”. He said.
