Bello Shagari, the grandson of Nigeria’s former civilian President, Shehu Shagari has said that late dictator, Sani Abacha was a good leader that contributed to the progress of Nigeria.
The young Shagari made this known in a series of tweet on his official and verified twitter handle.
He also accused Sout-west based media of dragging the names of Northern leaders to the mud.
He said. “In as much as I hate the North/South confrontations; which is more a less a distraction to our National progress, the South Western Media has done so much in dragging the names of Northern leaders to the mud. Abacha is one example but the man remains widely popular in the north.”
“There was never a time in Nigeria when we had economic stability and progress like Abacha’s regime. And that is because he had to “force” it and there were causalities of course. The same can be said about security. Both problems are now things we are struggling within Nigeria.”
