Buhahari toes the Goodluck line

Former president Goodluck Jonathan claimed he had no shoes as a poor kid growing up in his village Otuoke.

That earned him the tag “Shoeless Joe” and he was known to sometimes go without shoes in meetings at the Presidential Villa.

This has been made worse by the president’s tendency to put his foot in his mouth.
