The senior special assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, says following the President is “legendary”.
Shehu said this during an interview with NTA while commenting on the number of people who welcomed the President to Borno state last week adding that 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
