Speaking at Ibadan on Friday evening while receiving the National Congress Committee of APC at the Government House, Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State praised President Buhari who he said has managed the Nigerian economy better than his predecessors; Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan.
According to him, Buhari is the most credible president that Nigeria has ever produced and he has been able to maintain that integrity till date.
“I read Economics and Finance, and there is no economic theory that we have not read. The most important part of all the economic theory is leadership. .
“And Nigeria is lucky to have that leadership. There is no president in Nigeria that has ever managed the economy like Buhari,” he said.
“I was in one of Buhari’s delegation to London, and when he was asked to speak he said ‘I have no money to distribute. All I have been selling is my integrity,” he said. .
“Politics is just a game that if God plays it, some people will abuse Him no matter the performance.
“I use to tell the president anytime I meet him not to worry people are abusing him. I told him that people abused Prophet Muhammed and Jesus Christ, who are godsent not to talk of us ordinary human beings. That is why God has created the world a binary one,” he said.
Ajimobi, who described the APC as the greatest party in Africa, said that the party was known for internal democracy, adding such was the cardinal principle preached by Buhari, the leader of the party.
“We intend to work closely with the local chapters in achieving the desired success, so that the party will come out strongly,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) reports that the committee led by Musa Aliyu were in the state for the ward congress of the APC scheduled to hold today.
