Buhari ends Ramadan feasts by personally serving food to IDPs
The president personally dished up food from a buffet table to his guests.
The daily breaking of fast, known as iftar, was recently criticised by Aisha Yesufu, a key of member of the #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group, who complained that Buhari had made a habit of dining with the influential members of the society, neglecting the poor who welcomed him to campaign rallies.
Yesufu specifically asked why the president chose to break his fast with only privileged members of the society, wondering why IDPs in the north-east had not been invited.
And on Monday, which is likely the last day of Ramadan, the president called the less privileged to dinner where he became their “mama put”.
