Aww! President Buhari’s personal photographer reflects on his encounter with Obama

To celebrate Obama‘s exit from the white house today, president Buhari’s personal photographer, Bayo Omoboriowo, has shared the
above photo with a shorty story of his encounter with the outgoing president.

He shook my hands and gave me a pat on my back as he was told I look
like him……..don’t mind the face I made, i was star-struck.
@barackobama made Presidency look so cool and his style of leadership
has inspired a lot of us in the political landscape. My photography
today and the way I work has been influenced due to a serious study of
this man through his videos and images by @petesouza . I just want to
say thank you for serving America and thank you for the privilege to
have this image with you….. I would never forget this day. Thanks to
@annaruch of the @whitehouse photo office for sending this photographs
through as captured by @petesouza since I was with my camera and
couldn’t have had this image if they didn’t help. #letsdomore #yeswecan
#yeswedid #whitehouse “
