In a documentary titled “Buhari: Beyond the Iron and Steel” put together by the President’s media team, and scheduled to be aired by 8:00 p.m on December 24 and 25 on Channels Television and NTA, President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said she wished Nigerians know the Nigerian President is not really that strict, but also a soft man who is jocular as well.
“How I wish Nigerians know his softer and accommodating side. Very jocular. But it is our duty to tell them,” she said.
On the Vice President’s part, Yemi Osibanjo said President Buhari allows one to bring in his ideas in any assignment he gives and also work without interference.
“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.”
Nigeria’s Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola in the interview, said;
“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.”
President Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, earlier today released snippets from the documentary on Buhari: Beyond the Iron and Steel, which he claimed is aimed to spice up the holiday season, and also reveal unknown side of President Muhammadu Buhari.
