President Muhammadu Buhari's Media aide, Femi Adesina, rebuffed allegations on the flamboyant lifestyle of the Buhari family.

Adesina who spoke during a radio programme on Tuesday took digs at former president Goodluck Jonathan's daughter Ine whom the Presidency's imagemaker alleged to have received 80 cars during her wedding in January 2015.

His words:
"Yes you saw pictures (of Zara Buhari's wedding to Ahmed Indimi) but pictures can be deceptive, pictures will not give you the exact impression, it doesn't communicate the exact thing that happened. I was at that wedding. I was the master of ceremony at the wedding launch. Despite the fact that it was the president's daughter's wedding, I will say it was modest.

"If you know our President, you will know that there is no ostentatious bone in his body. That wedding luncheon was modest for a sitting president. I don't like to compare but we were here when President Jonathan's daughter got married. You know the number of cars that she got, 80."
