When President Buhari wore a suit for his first campaign shoot last year, some Nigerians were quick to mock him while others praised him for the dapper look.
According to Rotimi Amaechi, that’s the first and probably the last time Buhari will dress that way! Speaking at the red summit gala which held at the Harbor point, off Ahmadu Bello way, Victoria Island Lagos last night, the APC lord told a story of how he got Red media (Debola Williams and Chude Jideonwo)
to handle the election campaign for Buhari.
“Buhari said to me, do we have to do all these paparazzi, Amaechi you know my nature but i said him, sir you have to wear this suit so that Nigerians can see the handsome side of you. Wee had to convince him and then he finally obliged us and today, that photoshoot is still the best he has ever had.
We were able to present the other side of the president that most people did not know…most peeps didn’t know he can laugh but we brought out that side of him.
On behalf of the campaign and Buhari, i thereby appreciate Debola Williams and Chude Jideonwo for their hard work and achieving a feat that many thought they couldn’t achieve. When i gave the job to them,
I took a risk.
Why? There was a company from America, another from Britain that wanted to do this job and handle the campaign for us but I wanted these young men to do it and i was ready to take the risk, fail or succeed with
them and look where we are.
Yes God won the election for us but used them and Nigerians.” he said.
