Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari, is yet to return to his country from a reported holiday in the UK. Over the past week the Senate president, Bukola Saraki and the speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, visited the president in the UK. To reassure the Nigerian public of their president’s wellbeing, photos of this meeting were posted online.
What happened next was indicative of internet users in today’s society; as photo-shopped images of ordinary Nigerians sitting alongside the President and his staff started circulating online.
It seems many people have met with the Nigerian president. The question is… were you with Buhari?
