Former President Muhammadu Buhari has berated his critics, accusing them of distorting facts about his administration.
Buhari, Nigeria’s immediate past president, has been a subject of intense criticisms following revelations of misappropriation of funds by some of his appointees and close aides recently.
The Katsina-born retired Military General, however, said his government did its best to be transparent in all its dealings.
Buhari made the comment in Abuja on Tuesday at the public presentation of two books on his administration.
The books are titled, “Reflections of a Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, 2015 – 2023, written by Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity and “Muhammadu Buhari: The Nigerian Legacy (2015 – 2023), edited by Udu Yakubu.
The former president said:
“We were as transparent and accountable as possible, being aware of the fact that posterity was the ultimate judge.
“We kept records of our stewardship, knowing that we would always be required to account for the trust entrusted to us.
“Let revisionists not rejoice that they have the ultimate say in the bid to distort history.
“Facts and records will ultimately prove them wrong. When some people engage in deliberate falsehood and distortion of facts that pertain to our tenure in office, I take solace in the fact that records are there, and will remain inviolable.”
