While speaking in an interview with Aliyu Mustapha of Voice Of America in Washington DC, on Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari, opened up on his lifestyle aside from his love for cattle and penchant for newspaper cartoons as revealed by his spokesperson, Garba Shehu in 2016.
According to Premiun Times, the President gave Nigerians a sneak peek into his personal life when he revealed that he does not listen to music.
He said, “I don’t get to listen to music but I find time to rest. When I was a General, I gave orders, but now, I receive orders. The doctor is here. He always insists that I eat well and rest, that is why many are surprised at how quickly I recovered.”
Unlike his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan and his wife Patience who loved entertainers especially Nollywood stars, President Buhari appears to have more ‘pressing’ issues on his plate than entertainment.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, was also an avid dancer himself has always had a liking for King Sunny Ade, as back in 2013, a highlife singer, Ibitayo Jeje, featured Obasanjo in her music video titled, ‘Why You Love Me So’.
While Buhari pays little or no attention to music, his flair for dressing in a modest manner has not gone unnoticed as he is always garbed in traditional attire and matching accessories which has now become an essential feature of his dressing.
These days, the President seems to go everywhere with a blue-coloured diary, on which he writes notes occasionally.
As things stand, the diary is now the President’s most famous accessory aside from his signature horn-rimmed reading glasses.
