The reaction of the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to the co-founder of Paystack, Ezra Olubi, at the national awards ceremony on Tuesday has been trending on social media.
Olubi was conferred with the Officer of the Order of Niger on Tuesday alongside his co-founder, Shola Akinlade.
In the viral video, the retired major general smiled as he handed over the award but kept looking at Olubi, as he moved back to his seat.
From photos that he shared, Olubi was wearing a black outfit with pleats flowing from the neckline down the front.
