Man who named Dog Buhari: “The President must be having a good laugh over this whole thing” – Presidential Spokesman



Garba Shehu on Man who named do BuhariThe Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu has said that the president must be having a good laugh over the issue of the man arrested for “conduct likely to cause breach of the peace”  after he named his dog “Buhari” in Ogun state.

He said this while reacting to reports linking the president to the incident.

Shehu wrote on his Twitter handle:

I am thinking of saying, using my own handle that people linking the President to this dog incident are just displaying their ignorance of the type of person he is

He enjoys cartoons and likes sharing them. The  ones he enjoys the most are those that caricature him. It is cheap and sensational to say he can order a police action against a caricature.

When he picks a paper, the first page he reaches for is the cartoon page. He laughs and laughs.

The President must be having a good laugh over this whole thing.

People should listen to the real story behind this dog incident and to not waste precious time seeking the hand of the President in a laughable incident!

Meanwhile, Vanguard reported on Thursday that the trader, Joe Chinakwe has been released after perfecting his bail conditions.

Chinakwe met his bail conditions yesterday (Wednesday) after receiving about N90,000 through fundraising appeal coordinated by a human rights lawyer, Inibehe Effiong.

He was released around noon on Thursday and went straight to his residence in Sango-Otta, Ogun State.

Chinakwe was granted N50,000 bail by a after he was charged with intention to cause breach of public peace before Bolaji Ojikutu of the Sango-Otta Magistrates’ Court.

    Good to know that while we are groaning over hardship and one-sided governance, PMB is laughing at cartoons and sharing them.

    How insensitive this Garba is! How would he at a time like this spew such insensitive things, I know you’re trying to say the President has a sense of humour but this is the worst way and time to pass the message to Nigerians. To say the President had a good laugh over this issue when there were death threats and slight ethnic unrest is beyond ignorant of you You always try to portray the president a good man which is your job but you do an extremely terrible job at it. Learn from the West how it is done! The whole world knows Obama has a funny side and he didn’t need his Media adviser to show it!

    No wonder he hasn’t said anything on the Fulani herdsmen killing people. Probably, he sees the fulani herdsmen as a new cartoon character.
    If Buhari does not retrace his steps on nepotism and tribal sentiment; Nigeria will disintegrate under him; so fast

    It’s been only one year since PMB has been in power and we are already soo tired of him. Please can we vote him out? Just read that 20 Foreign freight companies have left Nigeria and 3000k workers left stranded. ….Buhari how will you ban importation of rice, wheat, vehicle spare parts etc when you the country isn’t producing enough itself yet? You want an increase in criminal activities and smuggling abi. You make me sick! Please make sure you laugh on this too

      Ban on importation of rice, Dangote’s gain. This ban thing from Obj’s tenure has never served any good purpose but to impoverish people and make doing business more expensive. I wonder why successive governments in this country don’t ever learn from previous mistakes. So disappointing. People would rather eat abakiliki rice than buy rice 24k a bag. Worst part is that Dangote’s products are not the best in the market but he sells cos government favors him and it’s unfair and unfortunate.

    Buhari is “”having a good laugh over”” this poor Southern Christian trader’s travails, inhumane treatment and outright robbery of his rights as a full-fledged citizen of this country in the face of spurious accusations by a foreigner, most probably an illegal alien, from Niger Republic, oh yes, a muslim.

    Garba, you have just proven to us, as if we needed any more proof, that we do, indeed, know the president. We “”are”” NOT in “”ignorance of who he is.””
