Abike Dabiri, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora Matters has expressed her wishes for Nigerians to be aware of President Muhammadu Buhari’s softer and accommodating side.
She said she wished many know that the president is not all about the firm approach but he is also a soft man who is jocular as well.
Dabiri said this in a documentary, “Buhari: Beyond the Iron and Steel” put together by the President’s media team.
“How I wish Nigerians know his softer and accommodating side. Very jocular. But it is our duty to tell them.” Abike Dabiri, Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina earlier today released teasers from the documentary on Buhari: Beyond the Iron and Steel saying the documentary is aimed to spice up the holiday season.
“He gives you things to do and leaves you strictly to do those things. No interference at all, once he has confidence in you….And he cracks those jokes and manages to still keep a straight face” -Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
“He gave me some priority projects: Mokwa/Jebba road, Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, and Second Niger Bridge… He never appends his signature to anything, unless you’ve explained, and he understands it.” Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola, Minister of Power, Works and Housing.
“When we were in the opposition, you needed to see how we rolled on the floor in his living room, as we laughed. Of course, we can’t do that again now.” Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna State governor.
“I wish I had his patience. He would listen to everybody and then take a decision. He is a reformed Democrat.” Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State.
The documentary will be aired at 8:00 p.m on December 24 and 25 on Channels Television and NTA to show a documentary on the unknown side of President Muhammadu Buhari.
