Femi Adesina, Special Advisor to the President on Media and Publicity, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari’s imprints would be permanently etched into the sands of time.
Adesina wrote; “President Buhari’s imprints would be indelible on the sands of time” in his piece published on Thursday, June 30, titled, “Buhari in Portugal: A Prophet has no honor in his Country.”
He further noted that the President’s achievements in social investment, infrastructure development, and other areas will endure forever.

However, Adesina acknowledged that security is a difficult problem and hoped that Buhari will resolve it in the remaining 11 months.
As for revisionists, who try to ensure that the administration would be remembered for only massive insecurity that has plagued the land, they will never win. Buhari’s place in history is secure already. Good and honest Nigerians will always remember him for his positive strides, and the world will not forget him either.
Speaking on Buhari’s visit to Portugal and the befitting reception accorded him, Adesina said Jesus had rightly said a prophet had no honour in his home.
The essay further read;
What am I saying? The Buhari some people abuse, deride, and excoriate at home has been standing ramrod straight in Lisbon, Portugal, this week, paying an official visit to that country, guest of President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa. He has attended Economic Seminar between Nigeria and Portugal, visited the Portuguese Parliament, and got conferred with the highest National Honour, Grand Collar of the Order of Prince Henry.
Before heading back home, President Buhari will also be presented with keys to the City of Lisbon, making him an exalted citizen of the domain.
And that is the Buhari some people call names at home. People who don’t have the slightest achievements to their names, people who are both anonymous and miscellaneous, completely undistinguished. They wash their mouths on a man who has ruled the country twice, both as military and democratically elected leader. Let some of those critics run for councilor. Zero votes.
