PHOTOS: Buhari hosts his 3 young admirers at the Presidential Villa
President Muhammadu Buhari invited a 10-year-old girl named Aysha Aliyu Gebi from Bauchi state to the State House in Abuja after her letter requesting to see him surfaced online, along with two other little girls.
The president hosted his three of his young admirers at the presidential villa, Abuja.
The three kids - Nicole Benson, from Lagos, Maya Jamal from Abuja and Aisha Gebbi from Bauchi - reportedly spent about 30 minutes with the president Monday morning.
They have shown their support for the president in different ways.
Ms. Benson, a nine-year-old pupil of Greensprings School Lekki in Lagos, made headlines prior to the 2015 presidential election when she donated her lunch ticket to then candidate Buhari as her contribution to his presidential campaign.
Maya Jamal, the three-year-old daughter of a popular social media user, “White Nigerian” was seen in a 10 second video praying for the quick recovery of Mr. Buhari while he was in London receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment.
Aisha, who is a 10-year-old from Bauchi, penned a letter seeking a face-to-face meeting with the president, which was posted by her niece, Huseini Gebi, asking for a retweet to make her dream a reality.
President Buhari’s personal assistant on new media, Bashir Ahmad, showed the President over the weekend and he asked her to come and see him.
