The governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello has condemned attacks on the leadership style of President Muhammadu Buhari by some critics.
The governor said President Buhari is the most democratic president he has ever come in contact with across Nigeria.
Speaking in an interview with Daily Trust, the governor said the President Buhari-led administration has shown that a former military general can be so democratic to allow certain things happen.
He said: "Mr President is the most democratic president I have ever seen. This is the first time we are seeing a former military head of state that is so democratic to the extent of allowing things happening in his home front to be democratized not to talk of things happening in the country."
"Whoever is tagging him to be a dictator, I think that person wished to be a dictator himself not Mr President," Governor Bello said.
Speaking on developing Kogi state, the governor said he has been making efforts to ensure that there is total reconciliation of all aggrieved parties in the state following the just concluded elections.
He said his administration intends to bring everyone on board for the good of Kogi state and its people.
"That was what resulted in the massive victory of the last general elections. Leaders and stakeholders of the state have been called upon to join in the new direction of the administration. So, we are moving on perfectly," Bello added.
