The former interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande yesterday said that most Nigerians are fond of blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for their selfinflicted woes, saying citizens wrongfully accuse the president even when they know they are not fair. He said despite the fact that average Nigerians are aware that they are fraudulent, deceitful, cheaters and unfair, they still blame the President, saying that the practice is unfair, and very wrong. Akande, who spoke at the presentation of his autobiography titled: ‘My Participation’, said: “You and I want Nigeria, Nigeria is not yours alone, because you are our leaders, we accuse you for every move that is wrong. Even though when we know that we are not being fair to ourselves. We know we are fraudulent, we know we are deceitful, we know we are cheaters. Of all the things we are doing wrong, we blame on you, I didn’t sympathise with you, you applied for the job.”
The visibly elated Akande said that he was happy that President Buhari honoured his book presentation, saying that: “In the olden days I would have burst into tears, but today I am very happy.” The former governor, however, expressed reservations over the inability of the President to stay long in the Southwest. He said: “I am only uncomfortable, that each time our President is coming here, he is always in a hurry.
He is our President, we love him, he is one of us, we always want him to relax, and come and stay with us, have a dinner with us, let our children eat with him, touch his clothes, and let him know that we love him. “But his handlers never recognised that he is no longer growing younger, they think he is still a soldier, they march him everywhere.”
