The 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!
