We Don’t Laugh With Buhari Again - El-Rufai
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State says he the smiling and giggling has ended and their sleeves are rolled up for work.
While talking about Buhari’s jocular side, the governor noted that he and others close to the president, laughed and rolled on the floor before he (Buhari) won the election in 2015.
He spoke in a documentary about the president captioned: “Buhari: Beyond the Iron and Steel” put together by the President’s media team.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, made excerpts of the interviews in the documentary, to show the other side of Buhari, available on his Facebook page on Sunday.
“When we were in the opposition, you needed to see how we rolled on the floor in his (Buhari’s) living room, as we laughed. Of course, we can’t do that again now,” Adesina quoted El-Rufai as saying in the documentary.
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo was also quoted as confirming that Buhari cracks jokes and still keeps a straight face.
“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,” Osinbajo said.
