President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has defended her principal’s decision to attend the wedding ceremony of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s daughter, Hajiya Fatima and her groom, Idris Ajimobi on Saturday.
Onochie was responding to the many criticisms of the president on social media.
“President @MBuhari is an adult. He decides where he goes. He decided it’s Kano today. And to Kano he went,” she wrote.
The event, which took place in Kano on Saturday, saw Buhari and 22 Governors in attendance.
Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were also present.
Dear Nigerians, your President is an adult, he can go where he likes and can also refuse to go where he dislikes, Lauretta Onochie PA to President Buhari on social media gives insight on why Buhari has refused to visit Benue, Yobe and Taraba to commiserate with them. pic.twitter.com/4G9Ic4IgGA
