Garba Shehu, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, has seen that some members of the current administration’s employees are starting to change their allegiances to the next administration.
Such action is a part of “human nature,” in Shehu’s opinion.
Shehu pointed out, however, that due to the former president Goodluck Jonathan’s evident patriotism, the current transition is distinct from what Jonathan went through.

In an interview with Arise TV, Shehu said, “You can’t change human beings. So, the man of the moment obviously is the incoming president, But I think the case of Jonathan was different because I think again, there was desertion by a number of people around him who felt disappointed that he chose to be patriotic, nationalistic, and accepted defeat.”
Shehu emphasized that the desertion witnessed during Buhari’s transition period was far less than in Jonathan’s case.
He said, “I don’t think that we’re witnessing any spectacular desertion of the place.”
Shehu claims that during Buhari’s eight years in office, the Presidential Villa was never used like a party headquarters, pointing out a level of decorum in the current transition.

Shehu characterized the relationship between the president-elect and President Buhari as friendly.
He stated, “It’s going to be a perfect relationship because it is going to be the same government although different administrations.
“The incoming president never gets tired of saying that the president allowed him to win. It is very significant. He allowed him to win in a free and fair process.”
