He stated this while speaking on an NTA programme on Friday.
Shehu made the comment while answering a question on whether the president would appoint more women in his government.
He said: “This is a prayer you are making and I join you in prayer, I support you,” he told the anchor, adding: “I think he should get more women.”
He also said: “In any case, do you know that all his ministers of finance have been women.
“Let me say this, I hope I don’t get myself into trouble. He is more trusted of women than men, because he has given this country… all these years, all the country’s money is in the hands of women and they kept it safely. And they are doing well.”
He also added that the president likes to spend time with children during his leisure and usually takes a walk as a form of exercise.
“The president watches television, he watches wild life, he does watch NTA promptly as much as he can,” he said.
“And the president enjoys being with little ones, he has a number of grand children and he is entertained by them all the time.
“He takes a walk around the house and in a way, exercises himself.”
