Buhari's Tooth-Picking Picture Illustrates Lazy, Insensitive, Bad Leadership – Scottish Varsity


Alt: = "Robert Gordon University, and President Muhammadu Buhari"

A popular Scottish university, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen,  has confirmed using a photo of President Muhammadu Buhari picking his teeth amidst rising poverty and insecurity in Nigeria to illustrate insensitive and bad leadership

In a report by Peoples Gazette, the university said that Buhari’s posture represents very aspect of  bad leadership globally, adding that it encourages academic freedom of its students and academic staff members.

“The video demonstrates the lecturer summarising the results of a student-led discussion around various examples of leadership.”

“RGU is committed to upholding the academic freedom of its staff,” the university said.

The statement was in response to a video of the lecture where President Buhari was used to illustrate bad leadership that circulated online. 

According to Robert Gordon University authority, the RGU students analysed pictures of Muhammadu Buhari, especially the one in which he was picking his teeth, and concluded that he bore the traits of a lazy, insensitive president. 

The infamous picture was released by the Presidency on August 5, 2019, to show that President Buhar is unperturbed and  to disparage citizens agitating for the President to act on rising, insecurity and hunger in the country and immediate release of Omoyele Sowore, who was then held by the Department of State Security, DSS.

The picture showed the president on a sofa, picking his teeth, presumably after a meal. The outer pair of his native baban riga clothes hung nearby, while the reflection from the glass shelves showed he was watching himself on television.

The picture subsequently earned the Nigerian leader a constant and widespread derision and became a catch-all for social media memes. 

Critics said the picture buttressed Buhari’s enduring public perception as a selfish, insensitive to the hardship in the land, and incompetent president.
