Buhari should be commended for tolerating ‘rubbish’ – Gov. Masari
Mon, 19 Apr 2021   ||   Nigeria,

KATSINA– Monday, 19 April 2021: Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, has said Nigerians should commend President Muhammadu Buhari for tolerating rubbish from some Nigerians.

Gov. Masari, in a Television Continental interview on Sunday, added that President Buhari has not failed Nigerians.

He stated that “The rating of the President has not changed. Anybody saying that the rating of the Buhari administration has gone down should wait till when we would have an election.

“Protests are necessary in a democracy. Even in the best democracy in the world,  people protest. The fact that we have democracy does not mean that people should not complain or protest.

“I don’t think Buhari has failed us, I think he has tolerated us. We once had a civilian president who couldn’t take the rubbish that Buhari is taking from some people.”

Masari described the All Progressives Congress as “the strongest, most reliable, and dependable party in Nigeria today.”

He further revealed that that his government had been negotiating with bandits but later failed because of ‘absence of organised leaders’ on the side of the bandits.  

“I started the idea of dialogue with bandits way back in 2016 in collaboration with the heads of security agencies and we visited areas where the bandits were in charge.

“Some of them laid down their arms but the agitation continues and it escalated last year with the kidnap of the Kankara boys.

“The previous dialogue failed because the bandits are not under an organised leadership or umbrella. They are in various groups and categories,” he stated.
