The most widely read newspaper in Nigeria
Alexander Okere and Sodiq OyelekePublished16 October 2021The pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, has criticised a presidential aide, Femi Adesina, for comparing the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) to Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Nnamdi Azikiwe.
“I am old enough to have seen our colourful and even swashbuckling politicians in action. I have seen the great Obafemi Awolowo, the charismatic Nnamdi Azikiwe (Zik of Africa), Shehu Shagari, Amino Kano, M.K.O Abiola, Bashir Tofa, and many others in action.
“But I have not seen anyone with the kind of attraction, magnetic pull that Muhammadu Buhari has. And that is around the country; North and South. People swarm around him as bees do to honey,” Adesina had said.Awolowo was a Nigerian nationalist, political leader, writer and principal participant in the country’s struggle for independence. headtopics.com
Azikiwe, usually referred to as Zik, was a Nigerian statesman and political leader who served as the first President of Nigeria from 1963 to 1966; considered a driving force behind the nation’s independence, he came to be known as the “father of Nigerian Nationalism”.
But reacting to Adesina’s claim, the National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Jare Ajayi, described the comparison as “mischievous and mistaken” in a statement on Friday.Äccording to the Afenifere spokesperson, people are attracted to Buhari because he is the President.
Ajayi said, “For sure – and for various reasons – a person occupying a leadership position is always an attraction anywhere in the world.“To use the instances cited by the spokesman to gauge the popularity of the President, we can say that those who met him at the airport on his arrival from a medical trip could be in three or more categories.
“Those who genuinely wished him well and were happy to see him back, those who were there to be really sure that the rumour of his death they heard was not true, and those who always go to any place that people gather – especially when or where a leading figure is or will be present. headtopics.com

Am sure Buhari knows that Adesina is lying about him soon be removed from officebe ready to hear that. Buhari knows that Adesina is lying about him and will not be happy hearing that he is more popular than great Azik of African and Pan-Africanism like Awo' and others. They should have asked him why he excluded Ahmadu Bello from the comparison. Or was he scared of something?
When an educated person is hungry for something he is worse than a stark illiterate. FEMI ADESINA HAS STARTED TO RIDICULE AND BELITTLE HIMSELF. IT'S LIKE HIS EDUCATION HAS OUTLIVED IT'S USEFULNESS IN THE LIFE OF THIS YOUNG MAN OR COULD HE BE GOING INSANE? Could this be sycophants or illiteracy they have to investigate the type of weed some people smoke to know how to quickly rehabilitate them so as to be fit for the 21st century
