The President of the African Development Bank (AFDB) and former Honourable Minister of Agriculture, Federal Republic of Nigeria Dr. Akinwumi Adesina describes Gen. Yakubu Gowon as a Man of Great Honour.
He stated this in his recent tweet where he described the Nigeria’s former Head of State, as a man of great honour, decency, honesty, amazing simplicity, humility and integrity.
He went ahead to say ”I know him. A great and admirable elder statesman of Nigeria. His honesty and integrity are impeccable”.
This tweet however is getting different reactions from Nigeria citizens as some claim that his remarks are false while others also accept it to be true.
Below is the tweet and some reactions:

I wish you hadn’t made this tweet. The General has enough resources to publicly refute the allegation and even sue the MP if he’s being accused falsely. It’s going to 72hours and not a word from him?— Henry Shield (@henryshield) November 26, 2020
This tweet shouldn’t come from you, sir.
What did @akin_adesina knows that made him offer his reputation on the altar of defending a Nigerian leader accused of graft?— Mr. 'Dipo 🇳🇬 (@edoyakulo) November 26, 2020
Or do we really know @akin_adesina before rating and hyping him? https://t.co/uyXxGZA7iK
