‘I am coming if your tea is ready’: Turkish president joins students for Suhoor
Reports are that the Turkish strongman was invited through a Twitter message by a student of Ankara Yildirim Beyazit University to join them for pre-dawn meal at their dormitory.
A student, Güngör Atak, asked the president on Twitter if he could join the students for a Suhoor meal.
The Turkish president had a cheekier response up his sleeve to the unique request.
“I am coming if your tea is ready,” the Turkish president promptly said.
Not only that, the president went to share a pre dawn meal with the students and mingled with them, taking pictures and videos.
