#Cartoonist: No harm’s meant with my Artwork on Hanan Buhari’s Wedding – Mustapha Bulama. Mr. Mustapha Bulama, a Daily Trust newspaper cartoonist has reacted to the condemnation his artwork on Hanan Buhari’s wedding got from the presidency.
Bulama said he had shared a cartoon in which Aisha Buhari was seen flaunting pictures from Hanan’s wedding while Nigerians struggled to escape drowning. The cartoon came with the caption “At least you can enjoy the pictures.”
Reacting to the cartoon, Aisha Buhari’s spokesperson Aliyi Abdullahi described it as “unfair because Hanan held a “low-key wedding”.
In an interview with BBC, Bulama stated that he meant no harm. He expressed surprise with the reaction the cartoon got and also appealed to those in power to help the poor masses.
“I mean no harm for the marriage of Hanan Buhari. I was only doing my work. In the cartoon, l was just trying to show the experience of Nigerians currently.
“This is the first time I will get reaction from such high place to my work. It shows that those in power actually see and listen to us. I hope we continue to inspire them to make life easier for the people.”
