President Muhammadu Buhari has stirred up reactions from Nigerians on social media following his statement on General Sani Abacha .
Buhari had on Tuesday praised the late Head of State, saying that contrary to the opinion of Nigerians, he agreed to work with Abacha.
Speaking at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, he said Abacha constructed roads, and re-positioned education and health sector.
Buhari was quoted as saying, ‘I don’t care about the opinion you have about Abacha, but I agreed to work with him and we constructed roads from Abuja to Port Harcourt, Benin to Onitsha and so on. We also touched education and health institutions.”
With the aforementioned, Buhari stirred diverse reactions from Nigerians with some criticising him for supporting Abacha.
They wondered how Abacha who looted from Nigeria’s treasury could receive such commendation from Buhari who claims to be fighting corruption.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST…
@Lopex_Iyke “So according to your president buhari, Abacha is better than Obasanjo. Abacha that everyone in NIGERIA celebrated his death due to his high handedness, incessant killings and tyrannical system of leadership. Well, I am not surprised because like begets like.”
