Former Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, has hailed the appearance of President Muhammadu Buhari in traditional Igbo’s attire.
Chidoka, a chieftain of the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in a post on his Facebook page on Saturday, said Buhari (a Fulani man) dressing in another ethnic attire is a sign of big respect for and not weakness.
PlatinumPost reports that Buhari had during a visit to Ebonyi State at the weekend donned traditional Igbo attire with a red cap to march to the admiration of many Igbo politicians and leaders.
Sharing a picture of Buhari on his Facebook post, Chidoka, however, said his wish is that Buhari translates the dressing into ensuring fairness and equity amongst various ethnic groups in government’s appointments.
His words : “I want to stand tall like this at 80
” On another side. Dressing in other ethnic attire is not weakness or showmanship
“It is showing sensitivity and respect to the people.
How I wish President Buhari translated this sensitivity to his appointments.
“The President looks good at 80; I will work to achieve the same. Will you?”
