Presidential aide, Garba Shehu has described the following of his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari as legendary.
He made the comment in reaction to the president’s recent trip to Borno state.
Commenting on the visit when he featured on Good Morning Nigeria, a programme on Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Shehu said Buhari’s popularity remains “unassailable”.
He described the visit as “one of the best outings” the president has had of late.
“He was there officially to access the security situation in Maiduguri and to commission projects,” Shehu said.
“The governor of Borno state has achieved enormously in terms of delivering projects, education and health, roads and things like that.
“And then, you said optics, because politics is also important. COVID has tested the popularity of leaders all over the world.
“President Buhari has equally been tested and what we saw there in Maiduguri was that the popularity he has is unassailable, the die-hard following is legendary.
“So all of these things came together to give us one of the best outings the president has had in recent times.”
