The Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, has explained why Nigeria’s President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, bowed to greet Alhaji Aminu Dantata, a billionaire businessman and uncle to Dangote, during a meeting at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja on Tuesday.

Onanuga, taking to his X account shortly after the photographs of the meeting were made public, described Tinubu’s action as a demonstration of his ‘trademark respect’ for the 93-year-old patriarch of the famous Alhassan Dantata family from Kano.

Onanuga wrote, “President Bola Ahmed Tinubu showed trademark respect to Alhaji Aminu Alhassan Dantata, Chairman of Dantata Group of Companies when the latter visited him in Abuja on Tuesday. Dantata, 93 on 19 May, is the patriarch of the Alhassan Dantata family in Kano.”
