Read what President Muhammadu Buhari official photographer Bayo Omoboriowo wrote as he reminisced his life before he became the president's official photographer.

“Yesterday, we landed in Kaduna via a chopper and I literally had goosebumps. This was neither my first time flying in a chopper, nor my first time landing at this venue, but this time some memories came flooding in”.

“A little over 10 years ago, I landed at this same venue, in a luxurious bus, I had squatted in from Port Harcourt. I had come to do ‘Wait and Get’”.

“For those who do not know, ‘Wait and Get’ or ‘Pa pa pa’ is that kind of photography most photographers do to make quick bucks from events and in their innermost, pray they never do, due to people’s reactions to their photos, many times not collecting them”.

“(Have you rejected a wait and get photo at a wedding before?). This was my reality in 2010. I ran from pillar to post, to make ends meet, I had to squat at a Corpers’ lodge to pass the nights, beg to photograph strangers, as I hurried to the ‘Photo-lab’ to print, while hoping the people I snapped had not left the event”.

“Those days weren’t a casual stroll, but as we touched down this same venue a decade later, I am grateful to God that with the camera still on my hands, I am not where I was 10 years ago”.

“Regardless of how challenging today is, don’t ever look back, keep your hope alive, keep your dreams as a front-burner on your mind, keep staying positive, surround yourself with destiny helpers and destiny groomers”.

“Love and light always!”. Bayo Omoboriowo wrote.
