27 Times President Buhari Was Dripping Serious Swagg

September 2, 2015

He’s nearing his 100th day in office, so we thought: let’s take a trip down President Buhari’s fashion lane.

Obama might be the coolest president, but no one has swag like our president:

1. When the slayage all started…

2. We knew he would give us great pictures.

3. But we did not expect this level of awesomeness.

Even if they do not want it to happen in Febuhari, the people are saying March On General…….#nigeriadecides

4. No one has this much swagg while campaigning.

Once a General, always a General!

5. Except General Buhari, of course…

They said he has health issues but the gentleman is chilling reading newspaper #change #buhari #politics #campaign

The General people's General!

12. And I know I wouldn’t have been alone.

13. You can feel the control even when he’s laughing…

14. But that’s not why we are here.

15. He won the elections!!!

It's official, Game Over!

17. Look how good my president looks:

18. As a Lagos Big Boy.

23. Do your clothes look this good on you?

24. Can you honestly say yes?

Good bye good people of Niger Republic, you are far too kind…..till we meet again stay positive!

25. Most people pray for this level of cool,

27. He’s such a joy to photograph.

We are sure Bayo Omoboriowo would agree. He has one of the best jobs in Nigeria – the president’s official photographer. To see more photos, go to Bayo’s Instagram page.

Now share this with your friends and followers. Don’t keep PMB’s swag to yourself.
