- Presidency said President Buhari’s daughter’s wedding is modest compared to the wedding of Goodluck Jonathan’s wedding
- The presidency insisted that pictures can be deceptive and the public should not believe the pictures from Zahra’s wedding
The administration of President Buhari has once again finds fault with the former administration of Goodluck Jonathan.
Senior Special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina said that Zahra Buhari's wedding to Ahmed Indimi was a very modest affair.
Adesina, during an interview on Lagos Talk 91.3fm said: "Yes you saw pictures but pictures can be deceptive, pictures will not give you the exact impression, it doesn't communicate the exact thing that happened. I was at that wedding. I was the master of ceremony at the wedding launch. Despite the fact that it was the president's daughter's wedding, I will say it was modest."
"If you know our President, you will know that there is no ostentatious bone in his body. That wedding luncheon was modest for a sitting president. I don't like to compare but we were here when President Jonathan's daughter got married. You know the number of cars that she got, 80.”
Meanwhile, during the same interview, Adesina reacted to plans to organise a nationwide protest led by 2Baba Idibia to complain about the situation of things in the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
Adesina described those who are planning the protest are people who supported Goodluck Jonathan’s government and are still pained that he lost.
He said: "This is a country of about 180 million people. It is impossible for 180 million people to think the same way. Yoruba has a saying that is you all sleep and put your head in the same direction, then you are all foolish because you would be breathing in one another's mouth and lungs. Dont forget the last election and how it went. Somebody scored 12.5 million votes, another scored about 15 million votes. There are some people who are still in that election mode.”
