The comment was made by President Muhammadu Buhari's media aide, Garba Shehu in reaction to criticisms levelled against the president by Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
The Presidency has said that it welcomes criticism from Nigerians and will not fight people who point our flaws in governance.
“This government will not fight people for criticising the present administration led by President Buhari,” Shehu told Punch on Thursday, August 25, 2016.
“This kind of criticism is healthy for our democracy. One cannot get better without being criticised. I can assure you that this government is listening,” he added.
Sanusi had warned, on Wednesday, August 25, that the Buhari government might make the same mistakes as the Goodluck Jonathan administration if it failed to retrace its steps on some policies.
The Emir made the comments while speaking at the 15th meeting of the Joint Planning Board and National Council on Development Planning in Kano State.
