President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday admitted that it was difficult for anybody to defend him or his government. Buhari however, did not disclose the reason why he believed it was difficult to defend him and his government.
ut he said members of the group, who have been defending him and his government, had been doing so as a sacrifice.This he said was because members of the opposition were in possession of what he described as incredible resources that the ruling party could not match.
According to him, this is why the opposition has been sponsoring mischief that his government cannot stop. Buhari said, “I don’t think I can thank you enough for your steadfastness under very difficult circumstances. It is not easy to defend this administration and more in particular to defend me. But your consistency has given me a lot of confidence.
“I know you are doing it as a sacrifice: physical, mental and material, because as I keep on saying, the oppositions now are sitting on incredible resources which I am afraid we might not match it at all.
“For that reason, the opposition is sponsoring mischief from different angles which, in spite of the incumbency of government, we cannot absolutely stop. It is you that are fighting it and I cannot thank you enough for that.”
The President restated his earlier position that most of the people he jailed when he was a military head of state had been given back all that were seized from them before he was jailed. Buhari recalled that he spent 18 months in detention and luckily, nothing was found against him.
