President Muhammadu Buhari
President Buhari's aide, Garba Shehu has stated that the die hard following of his principal is “legendary”.
Shehu said this during an interview with NTA while commenting on the number of people who filed out to welcome the President to Borno state last week. According to Shehu, the President's popularity remains “unassailable”.
“He was there officially to access the security situation in Maiduguri and to commission projects. The governor of Borno state has achieved enormously in terms of delivering projects, education and health, roads and things like that.
And then, you said optics, because politics is also important. COVID has tested the popularity of leaders all over the world.
President Buhari has equally been tested and what we saw there in Maiduguri was that the popularity he has is unassailable, the die-hard following is legendary.
So all of these things came together to give us one of the best outings the president has had in recent times.”he said
