I Never Thought Buhari’s Toothpicking Photo Will Hit Wailers — Buhari’s Aide

Bashir Ahmad, President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on new media on Monday said he never thought the ‘tooth-picking’ photo of the president would stir such much rancor.

Ahmad says when he took the ‘innocent’ photo, which has easily become how critics describe Buhari’s government, and posted it to Snapchat around February 2019, he never envisaged how much it would hit ‘wailers’.

Since the photo landed on social media, Nigerians have used it for several reasons, mostly to taunt the president and his government.

Speaking via Twitter on Monday, the presidential aide wrote: It’s hard to understand why some people are genuinely angry because of this innocent pic. When I innocently snapped it on Feb 27 and posted on my Snapchat, it didn’t occur to me that it’s going to give wailers that strong hit. And @BulamaCartoons made an amazing cartoon out of it.
