7 Most Important People Behind Buhari


Of course there are some people that can influence the decisions of the leader of the nation as nobody can rule alone.

This are seven most significant politicians in President Mohammadu Buhari’s life.

These personalities are very close to the office of Nigerian leader. They set the speed and dictate the tune of what will happen to the country in the years of this government together with the president.

This group of people is very influential:

1. Femi Adesina


Femi Adesina

The presidential media aide is known as the image maker of President Buhari. Adesina is there to defend Buhari’s decision and indecisions and also attack the “wailing wailers” of Nigerian youths as well as the opposition, just as Reuben Abati put it forward for the immediate past president Goodluck Jonathan.

The president personally said that he chose Adesina to always defend him against his fellow journalists.

2. Garba Shehu

One more special assistant on media and publicity is working in in agreement with the office of Buhari as a PR and signals every actions of the administration to the public. Shehu has no much story to tell than press releases putting much shoulder on the young and vibrant Adesina.

Garba’s role is to assist on how best to react to media issues and respond on general matters as it concerns the presidency not issuing statements on Buhari’s official engagements as we’ve been seeing.

3. Nasir El-Rufai
