Presidency disowns photo of Buhari cracking jokes with Maina


A picture has circulated on media outlets (NOT NGHUBS) showing President Mohammadu Buhari cracking jokes with embattled Chairman of Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.

According to a tweet by Mallam Garba Shehu, the Official Spokesman of President Buhari, the person in the picture is not Maina but rather Hon. Ado Garba Doguwa Alhassan.

He tweeted: “There is a photograph all over the Social Media of President Muhammadu Buhari; Senate President, Bukola Saraki; and Hon. Ado Garba Doguwa Alhassan being mistaken to be the embattled ex-chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.“

Hon. Doguwa is the Chief Whip of the Federal House of Representatives, representing Doguwa/Tudun Wada Federal Constituency of Kano State.
