Buhari meets girl who donated her lunch money to his presidential campaign

President Muhammadu Buhari Monday in Abuja received three young admirers in the State House, who have shown high interest in his administration, and prayed for his recovery during ill-health.

3-year old Maya Jammal became an internet sensation when her videoed prayer for the President’s recovery went viral, while 10 year-old Aisha Aliyu Gebbi penned a personal letter to Pres. Buhari describing herself as his “biggest fan’’.


Nicole Benson, 12, had contributed N5,785 to the President’s campaign in 2015, which was all saved up from her lunch and pocket allowance.

“I am very impressed by what the children have been able to do,’’ President Buhari said, “I can see Maya is shy. I watched her video where she was praying for my recovery when I was ill.’’

“In a nation with few legends and accuracy of truth, we look up to you, Mr. President, and our children are looking up to you,’’ he added. Maya lives in the FCT, while Aisha came in from Bauchi State.
