Saraki looks at Buhari in some type of way during events; and Twitter is beginning to ask questions.
The 'Saraki stare' is that look Senate President, Bukola Saraki, aims the way of President Buhari when both men show up at the same event.
As the APC held its elective national convention on June 23-24, 2018, the Saraki stare was back as a subject for discourse on social media.
See some of the tweets below:
Is there anything to the SS? Respect? Admiration? Something noble or sinister?
Saraki and Buhari have a very interesting relationship. The senate president often complains about how the Buhari led presidency and the APC have treated him even though he's a member of the APC.
The senate president has been dragged to court for alleged financial crimes committed while he was governor of Kwara State. Saraki believes that his trial since 2015 for alleged false declaration of assets, was politically motivated. Saraki wasn't his party's choice for the position of senate president in 2015.
Saraki also belongs to the nPDP faction of the APC which recently threatened it was going to leave the APC if its demands aren't met.
