The Special Adviser to the President, on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has stated that he has not seen “anyone with the kind of attraction, magnetic pull, that President Muhammadu Buhari has”, Page 36 learnt.
He made this known in an article on his Facebook page, on Thursday, titled: ‘The essential Buhari: VP Osinbajo got it!’
His exact words: “I am old enough to have seen our colourful and even swashbuckling Politicians in action. I have seen the great Obafemi Awolowo. The charismatic Nnamdi Azikiwe (Zik of Africa), Shehu Shagari, Amino Kano, M.K.O Abiola, Bashir Tofa, and many others in action. But I have not seen anyone with the kind of attraction, magnetic pull, that Muhammadu Buhari has. And that is round the country, North, and South. People swarm round him as bees do to honey.
“I have been round the country with the President. I have also been to several countries of the world with him. I have not seen any other Nigerian Leader, past or present, with his kind of allure, pull, fascination, magnetism. And that is why VP Osinbajo is right to have described him as possibly “the most popular Nigerian Politician that we ever had in this generation”.”
