'Buhari had regrets as President' - Femi Adesina makes stunning revelation

Femi Adesina and Former President Muhammadu Buhari Femi Adesina and Former President Muhammadu Buhari

Mr. Femi Adesina, who served as the special adviser on media to former President, Mohammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, September 20, said his principal actually felt some things the administration did, could have been done better.

The Punch reported that Adesina spoke in Osogbo on Wednesday, at a programme organised by the Association of Veteran Journalists in Osun state.

The ex-presidential spokesperson said before Buhari left office, he had a two-hour chat with him, during which he asked all manners of questions.

According to him, during the interview session, he asked his principal what his regrets were, and Buhari expressed regret that certain things should have probably been done in another way.

Although Adesina did not state Buhari’s regret, he, however, said: “There is no living human being that will not regret certain things. It is one of the questions I asked the president.

“Before we left office, I sat with him for about 2 hours and I asked him every question under the sun and when we finished, he asked what I gave to Chief of Protocol that he gave so long a time with him. There was no question I didn’t ask him. There were things he (Buhari) felt could have been done better.”

Speaking further, Adesina said Buhari served the country diligently, but added that whatever inadequacies noticed in the manner his principal led the nation, could not be solely blamed on him.
