The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has claimed that Nigerians are more attracted to President Buhari than former Nigerian leaders like Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo, Aminu Kano and others.
The spokesperson posted an article containing this on his Facebook wall on Thursday and the article was titled "The essential Buhari: VP Osinbanjo got it!"
Femi Adesina stated that he has seen most of the former leaders/politicians in action and he could say that none of them has the same magnetic pull and the kind of attraction that Buhari has all over the country.
However, Afenifere through its National Publicity Secretary, Jare Ajayi, has described the comparison as mischievous and a mistake considering that people have grown over the years to mistrust government.
In furtherance, Ajayi said people will always be attracted to President Buhari because he is the president, that alone is enough to attract people anywhere he is.
