Many APC members were furious by his defection and the presidential greeting he received, but Adesina remarked in a piece published on Thursday, September 24, 2021, that party member should adopt Buhari’s spirit of forgiveness.
He pointed out that the former minister had spoken many ‘unforgivable and unpardonable’ things against the president, including wishing death on his son, but that he still showed mercy to him.
“And come to think of it. Is it pleasant to swallow one’s vomit? Nah. But that was what FFK did.
“All those foul words against the President, the APC, the government, many people in government. He has swallowed them. Delicious? By no means. Pueh! You would feel like retching.
“So, let’s salute the courage of his conviction. It is rare, and not many people would do it,” he wrote.
Adesina stated that party members have voiced their dissatisfaction and that they should move on so that the focus can return to working together for the country’s advancement.
