The Presidency on Monday submitted that it is not compulsory for President Muhammadu Buhari to personally speak on every matter.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu made this position known on Monday.
He expressed that President Buhari believes in action more than words.
He added that whenever he or the special adviser to the President on media and publicity, Femi Adesina speaks on behalf of the President, then Buhari has spoken to Nigerians on the issue and citizens should learn to accept that fact.

In his words, “When Femi Adesina or myself speaks for the president, people should accept that it is the president that is speaking. For this president, it is the actions that should speak for him; he (Buhari) is not a showman, he doesn’t have to be there.
“People should not personalize the issue. This country has problems, it requires the involvement of everyone, all hands must be on the deck to solve these problems –community leaders have a role, senators have a role, everyone has a role.”
