Do you remember this photograph? It was taken for posterity at the June 12 awards in 2018.
Mrs Ganiat Fawehinmi had come on the stage to be decorated on behalf of her late husband Chief Gani Fawehinmi. At the moment of decorating her something fell from the box containing the plaque . Pronto , President Mohamadu Buhari, in his more than six feet frame, went all the way down to pick it for her even before the SGF Boss Mustapha could. It was spontaneous, it was real.
This act is simple and may appear ordinary for the non discerning but it says something about the man’s character, the one that may not be known to many.
Yes , some Social Media discontents and haters will rain abuses ,even about this now , but what it is is what it is, a chivalrous act.
- Thank you Simbo Olorunfemi for reminding us of the priceless photograph once again. Do you by chance remember the name of the photographer? He or she deserves accolades for it.
