He claims that President Muhammadu Buhari attracts more people than famous politicians like as Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo and Aminu Kano.

Despite their demise, Awolowo, Azikiwe, and Kano continue to be revered widely.

Nigerian history would be incomplete without the contributions of these individuals, who played critical roles in bringing the nation to freedom.

Nevertheless, in his weekly piece, Buhari spokesperson Adesina agreed with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who believes that Buhari is the country’s most popular leader.

At the Nigerian High Commission in London last week, Osinbajo claimed this to diplomats.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is an honest guy, according to Adesina’s essay. Please, whatever he says, take it seriously. You can even deposit it in the bank since it’s a non-bouncing check.

As a number 2 guy, what else would you expect a man to say about his principal? He will not publicly excoriate or flagellate him, and since he may need his support in the future for the number one position, he will say sweet things.. to him.

When it comes to the traits of a normal political figure, I’d say yes. Professor Yemi Osinbajo, however, is not in that mold, as those of us who deal with the pair are well aware. He is truthful, accurate, and wholly reliant on God for the future. Nothing is life or death, therefore he had the option of remaining silent regarding the President’s characteristics in order to avoid being misunderstood.

It’s not only what my ears have heard; it’s what my eyes have seen that Buhari is perhaps Nigeria’s most popular politician in decades.

As a child, I was captivated by the antics of our flamboyant and even swashbuckling politicians. I’ve seen pictures of Obafemi Awolowo, the legendary leader of the Yoruba people. Nnamdi Azikiwe, a dynamic leader (Zik of Africa). Shehu Shagari is the name of the leader. Amino Kano is the protagonist of the film. MKO Abiola was a Nigerian politician. Activists like Bashir Tofa and others. But Muhammadu Buhari is the most magnetic figure I’ve ever encountered. Once again, this is from coast to coast. Those who know him gather around him as bees gather around nectar.

“I accompanied President Obama on a cross-country trip. With him, I’ve visited a number of countries across the globe. I’m not aware of any other Nigerian leader with his level of appeal, draw, interest, and magnetism, whether past or current. VP Osinbajo correctly characterized him as “the most popular Nigerian politician we have ever had in this generation,” and that’s why.

Buhari is adored by many Nigerians, according to Adesina, who gave the example of how people took to the streets when the president returned from his longest medical vacation ever, which took place in another country.

When President Trump finally returned to the nation after his medical vacation in August of last year, I was there. A few occasions out since January of that year, but mostly spending weeks or months outdoors caring to his health,” he said in the letter.

“On the 19th of August, he joyfully returned to his family’s house. We were waiting for him at the airport when he arrived. Several times, I have recounted the tale to debunk the myth that it was a specific Jibril from Sudan who returned to Nigeria, not President Buhari. Gen Gabriel Olonisakin’s daughter was being married, and he was the best man. And I was dressed in full Yoruba traditional clothing of Agbada and a matching hat for the church ceremony and reception. After the ceremony, I headed straight to the airport to attend the President’s welcoming party.

When the plane landed, we, the president’s top advisers, formed a line to greet him. In his usual way, he made one or two wisecracks while shaking hands with each individual he met. It’s the finest I’ve seen you dressed yet,” he remarked as he came to me. And then both of us burst out laughing.

The Sudanese leader Jibril? Who am I, Adesina, that he knew I was? What makes him think he knows how I usually dress? Yet again, idiocy has shown itself. However, it was just a diversion; the tale I intended to relate in favor of the subject at hand is very different.

“The convoy moved as we approached the rows of parked cars. The trip from the airport to the town was one of the most time-consuming that I’d ever experienced. What was the source of their emergence? They descended on the road in swarms like locusts, slowing down the convoy many times. I had no idea the neighborhoods around the airport had such a large population.

No one persuaded or recruited the people to turn out in large numbers in order to welcome President Obama back to the United States. Many ordinary Nigerians, those who bore the brunt of the country’s problems at the time. Wagging and shouting, they flocked to the highways to welcome their beloved back home. They applauded uproariously every time the President waved at them from the presidential motorcade.

Before we could get to the Presidential Villa, it had taken us twice as long as usual.
