PHOTONEWS: Buhari meets campaign volunteers, takes his first selfie

Buhari takes selfie with fans.

Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari was in Lagos Tuesday to meet with a small group of his most passionate volunteers – and after an engaging evening of ideas, vision, and intense engagement on the future of the country, he took some time out… for his first selfie!

The event had in attendance his key supporters including Governor Babatunde Fashola, Nasir el-Rufai, and Director General of the campaign, Governor Rotimi Amaechi and Senator Olorunnimbe Mamora. There were joined by several prominent young leaders volunteering for his campaign, including ‘Gbenga Sesan, Idiare Atimomo, Akintunde
Oyebode, OO Nwoye, Isioma Osaje, amongst others.

“The fall of the Soviet Union informed my change of mind, towards the idea of multi-party democracy,” he said about his staunch belief in the power of democracy.”

“I flew into Adamawa as Head of State and that was the last we heard of Maitatsine (sect),” he said of fighting insurgents when he was Head of State.

“This is the beginning of a series of engagements,” he told the volunteers after a robust question and answer session. “We will keep you updated on series of engagements from January. Follow @thisisbuhari.”

One of the excited volunteers tweeted after: ‘I had doubts, because I was not born when he was President,” said talent manager, Isioma Osaje. “But tonight I have zero doubts. My vote come 2015 is for CHANGE.”

After the event, he stopped by at the screening of Saro The Musical, a production written by Bolanle Austen-Peters and produced by Terra Kulture.

  • Hajiya Binta (nee-Osinbajo)

    I never trust a man who finds it so HARD to smile…

    • Baba Messi

      Nagode Hajiya. Neither do i.

    • Usman

      Ridiculous, what about those that smile to deceive people, great leaders like George Washington, Lula da Silva, Paul Kagame, Abraham Lincoln, Magret Thatcher, Fidel Castro, Lee Kuan Yew, Nelson Mandela and many more rarely or never smile

    • abc

      What is it in Nigeria to smile today.What did you say about the president that smiles when corruptin allegations were mentioned, the president that smiles when he mention the name shekau. The president that smiles and dance when innocent school children were burned in their schools.

    • UO

      Babangida smiled a lot and see how he destroyed the country. GEJ Smiles a lot and he too has done tremendous damage, so we don’t need smilers

    • tundemash

      But you trust a failure ?

      President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in Turkey, February 2011:
      “Without security, there is no government. So it is not debatable, it is something we have to addressed and we are working towards that with vigour. But if I’m voted into power within the next four years, the issue of power will become a thing of the past. Four years is enough for anyone in power to make significant improvement and if I can’t improve on power within this period, it then means I cannot do anything even if I am there for the next four years.”

  • saj

    Carry on my hero until u hit GEJ At the aso rock, bring him out and take my father’s land to the peak. My vote is yours.

    • Don Messi

      The choice of words of you APC minions gives you away as potential terrorists and those liable to post election violence!
      What do you mean by; ‘ until you hit GEJ at the aso rock’??
      Is your Hero a suicide bomber??

      • Saj

        My dear don Messi am only talking to sensible people,who can understand a mare and simple English,let’s assume its football match,i am a Barcelona fan while you are Real Madrid’s fan, now if I said carry on Messi until you hit them where it hurts until you knock Madrid out of the league. My question to my readers, please does dat mean Messi is a suicide bomber and am saying he should go and bomb Madrid? My friend it’s now not the time for religious or ethnics sentiment,it’s now time for change,and Nigerians will get it by the will of God. And next time if you want say your rubbish say it else where,coz Nigerians are already fed up with your kind of ways of manipulation to cheat people.

        • tundemash

          you were discussing with a retard, u see he couldn’t decipher your simple statement.

  • Innocent

    There is something uncomfortable with the way he’s looking at the tablet.

    • tamedu 777

      Keep deceiving yourself

    • Kamal Kamaru

      Don’t forget he is about 88yrs old.
      Can’t teach an old dawg new tricks..

      • Aliyu

        You guys sha.. you say he is a terrorist, illiterate, uncomfortable with i-pad.. this and that, spreading lies simply because you don’t like him. Yet you see no imperfection in your so called leader GEJ. Na wa ooh. During his tenure corruption has reached unpresidented heights, more people died than in Syria (at least they are fighting civil war, we are not). Billions missing, presidential pardons..on and on. Please speak the true and try to be open minded. This administrtion is a big failure.


      Show us any picture where GEJ is looking at one

      • Enemona

        Is he scrolling with ten fingers? Just my observation.

        By the way, that flag is also green/white.

        • GEJisaDISASTER

          Did you see him sitting next to the flag of a different country?

  • Baba Messi

    The sad thing is that, some of those in the so called ‘selfie’ might become victims of the dog & Baboon policy if the old Ex-Coupist loses again as he is likely to(going by incontrovertible statistics!).
    Please general, remind these innocent boys and girls that the policy in Lagos is RIG & ROAST!

  • Usman

    Great, true leader

  • Clay

    #th”isis”buhari. ISIS! Nigerians should better know the platform they want to bring to power. ISIS is a terrible islamic violent and destructive organisation promoted from the pit of hell which orgy of violence is breathtaking. They are in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and their testimony is bombing, violence, beheading and amputation. They revel in criminal destruction of lives and property. They demonstrated this in 2011 after GMB lost the presidential election. Buhari’s twitter handle says it all. #thisisbuhari. Take away the “th” and Buhari what you get is ISLAMIC STATE. Nigerians is that what you want in this critical time of our nation. You vote is your power to keep Nigeria a secular state and not ISIS which the Buhari twitter handle has mistakenly revealed. SAY NO TO ISISBUHARI.

    • Wähala

He’s going down the toilet no matter what you Aborigines think or say, the religious fundamentalist line is old & wry joke so try something else. Mumu drunkard.

      • GEJisaDISASTER

        Go to Jonah’s FB page and see the lies of the millennium… The deception is he has initiated the development of a High Speed Rail Network in Nigeria and backed his lies by posting the picture of a Korean high speed train.

        • Maria

    • Jide
