The Buhari household is coming out in full force to support the head of the family as he seeks to become the president of Nigeria.

Just a less than two weeks after photos of one of Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter went viral on Nigerian social media platforms, another of his daughter has revealed things about her dad the public do not know.

Halima Buhari, who is the fifth daughter of All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari disclosed that despite her father's stern looks, he loves cracking jokes.

He’s like every normal father. He’s very realistic, he tells you how it is. He likes cracking jokes, he’s very caring. He’s very sensitive towards our feeding. He doesn't coerce us to do anything we don’t want to do. He’s a very understanding father unlike the image people. People say he’s strict but he has a very soft side,” Halima said in an interview with Lola Shoneyin.

Halima also gave an insight on the type of president her dad is going to be if voted into office revealing that he will not be the same person that ruled Nigeria in 1983.

Firstly this is a different era not the military regime in 1983. He will certainly be more tolerant and more passionate because he’s very passionate about leading Nigeria and leading it out of every single mess like corruption and insecurity,” Halima said.
