Garba Shehu said this while reacting to the comment made by President Buhari that he has given his best to Nigeria having served as a governor, a minister, and a president.

Reacting, Shehu said the President was right to have said he had given his best to the country.

“The president can be very casual sometimes in speaking and jovial and jocularly; I think this is what people fail to understand of him. They need to understand how he was persuaded and pressured to even run in the first instance.
