Buhari has been described as the only Nigerian politician who can look into the eyes of former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo , say no to his request and survive.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that Femi Adesina, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity described the former president in this manner in a piece he wrote titled ‘Buhari Applause for Akinwumi Adesina’.
He compared the former president to “America and some other world powers”.
Femi Adesina wrote: “If America and some other world powers come after you, you have every right to shiver in the broiling sun.
“It’s like Chief Olusegun Obasanjo telling you to dismount from the horse of leadership in Nigeria.
“Only a Muhammadu Buhari can look him straight in the eyes, and say; No sir. And survive it.
The Ogun State born leader and Buhari both ruled Nigeria as Military Head of States and Civilian Presidents.
However, Obasanjo has been critical of the current administration and was notably absent at the meeting of the National Council of State.
