The former president is also a master of facial expressions and some pictures taken of him catch him at the right moment. Over the years, he has racked up quite a number of facial expressions which you can definitely recognize and relate with as a Nigerian.
We have gathered nine of his greatest facial expression you will love:
1. The uninterested expression.
You can relate with this expression if you are stuck in a lecture hall, seminar or meeting you would rather not be in but it is compulsory to stay until it finished.
So you just try to look interested when your face says you’d rather be anywhere else but there.
2. The annoyed expression.
This expression is when you see you see someone you don’t like or you are forced to interact with them. Or when your parents/elders make you do something you hate.
3. The ‘it’s good for you/ntaww’ expression.
Ntaww! This is used when something you don’t like has gotten into trouble or when you warned them about something and they refuse to listen then the thing you warned against happens to them. You stick out your tongue to show you don’t care and that it serves them right..
4. The ‘what sort of rubbish is this’ expression.
This is an expression you can really relate with. Different things like this recession we are in to when you hear your university is going on strike or when your salary is to be delayed will bring it out the expression.
You will just twist your face and wonder what kind of nonsense is this?
5. The ‘I remember when’ expression.
When you remember something very nice and you can’t help but be happy about the memories. Or when someone needs your help and you remember all the wicked things they did to you and how you are going to use it against them.
6. The ‘can I help you’ expression.
You might be listening to music on your earphones somewhere in public or on an airplane and someone decides it is you they have to talk to and end up bugging your life.
Can I help you? What is it?
7. The ‘my hand no dey’ expression.
This is when you have washed your hands clean of a situation or do not what to get deeper into it than you already are. The expression lets them know you are done dealing with it and have nothing further to say or do.
8. The ‘have you heard me’ expression.
When we want to emphasize the importance of something, we tend to drag our ears or point to our ears to tell the people we are speaking to, to listen very carefully and take note of what we said.
9. The smug expression.
This look is when you are proud of what you have achieved in life and you don’t mind raising your shoulders to show you are a big man. It can also be used when you have made it in life and see people who told you you would never make it. ‘Ha, look at me now.’
