A Daily Trust newspaper cartoonist, Mustapha Bulama, has reacted to the presidency condemnation of his artwork on Hanan Buhari’s wedding.
In the cartoon shared, the cartoonist, captioning the cartoon “At least you can enjoy the pictures,” showed Aisha Buhari flaunting pictures from Hanan’s wedding while Nigerians struggled to escape drowning.
Reacting to the cartoon, Aisha Buhari’s spokesperson, Aliyi Abdullahi described it as “unfair because Hanan held a “low-key wedding”.
In an interview with BBC, Bulama stated that he meant no harm. He expressed surprise with the reaction the cartoon got and also appealed to those in power to help the poor masses.
He said; “I mean no harm for the marriage of Hanan Buhari. I was only doing my work. In the cartoon, l was just trying to show the experience of Nigerians currently.
“This is the first time I will get reaction from such high place to my work. It shows that those in power actually see and listen to us. I hope we continue to inspire them to make life easier for the people.”
