Adamu Garba, a former presidential candidate, has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for elevating Nigerian military capability to near-global levels in his eight years in office.
Garba stated on Sunday via his Twitter profile that Buhari has regained the Ajaokuta steel company, including the Mambila power plant, and the majority of the country’s power sector infrastructure from supposed western strangulation.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain added that despite rising opposition, the President was able to enact the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA) into law and rebalance the country’s foreign policy.
Garba went on to say that Buhari was able to pass the Solid Mineral Development Fund into law and establish a government agency to buy gold and shore up the economy.
“What do you expect from @BBCWorld?” he wrote. The Western media will always find an excuse to criticize brilliant African leaders like President Muhammadu Buhari. It’s not shocking!
“This is the President who rescued Ajaokuta, Mambila, and the vast majority of the power sector infrastructure from western strangulation.” Despite rising opposition, he was able to put the PIA into law, and he was able to build Nigerian military strength to near-global levels.
“Unlike most African puppeteer leaders, he was able to rebalance our foreign policy in purely Nigerian interests.” He was able to implement a vast agricultural transformation policy that ensures our near-constant food security.
“President Buhari was able to restart the 1972-year-old AKK pipeline project, much to the chagrin of most Western countries.”
For almost 40 years, I’ve done everything I could to avoid it. He flatly refused to accept a US military base in Nigeria.
“He got the West African gas pipeline project started.” When the West halted everything, it allowed Chinese investors to finish the LNG train 7 and train 8 projects. He was also able to maintain his position on all African projects, with Nigeria and Africa serving as his focal point.
“The President is capable of enacting the Solid Mineral Development Fund and establishing a government organ that will officially buy gold in order to support the value of the Naira.” He applied to join the BRICS coalition in order to establish an alternative World Order with Africa at the heart of decision-making.
“He conducted the most free and fair election in Western history.”country’s standards. His party won in the most democratic manner and, insha Allah, will give over the presidency of Nigeria to another nationalist, independent-minded, and strong leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in a few days. Etc.
“If Western media outlets such as @BBCWorld, @CNN, @AJEnglish, @ReutersWorld, @AFP, and others are not attacking Buhari’s legacies, then he has failed Nigeria.”
