Why President Buhari didn’t punish Governor Wike and Fayose – Femi Adesina reveals

The Special Adviser to President Mohammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina said his boss has revealed why his boss refused to purnish the likes of Governor Inyesom Wike and former Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose for their unrelentless attacks on him.

Mr Femi Adesina revealed in a recent post on his blog that President Buhari would have dealt with them in a way or the other but he decided to act like a father to them.

He said the President decided to tolerate their shinanigans towards him just like a father would tolerate that of his children.

According to his post;

“If not for the maturity, and the avuncular attitude of President Buhari to all state governors, it would have been easy for one to conclude that he and Wike were enemies. Forsworn ones.”

“There was also the then Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, who had formed a tag team with Wike in the anti-Buhari tendency. The President could have dealt with them in many ways, either overtly or covertly, but he let them be. He was a father ready to tolerate his many children, irrespective of their differing idiosyncrasies, propensities and predilections.”

“Of the five states, only Ondo and Osun belong to the APC. The other three are of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP). Rivers, under Wike, was particularly combative, truculent, if not at times insulting. But the President did not let that influence his decision. He did what was right, fair and just, irrespective of party affiliations, or personal inclinations.”
