Former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili, has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari, over statement on Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, losing weight because he was working hard to ensure security in the country.
Buhari said this when asked about security challenges across Nigeria and if there would be a different approach in tackling the issue.
He was quoted saying: “I have just seen the IG, I think he’s losing weight, so I think he is working very hard,” the president replied.
The statement by Buhari, however, did not go down well with many Nigerians
The former Minister, reacting, described Buhari’s statement as a “callous joke about insecurity” after ten days of leaving the country for some opaque ‘private visit’”.
On her Twitter page, she wrote “And this is supposed to be funny? A President Buhari making a joke of the daily drenching of the country in the blood of his citizens who are killed daily without ANY consequence while he bears the title “Commander-in-Chief”? Carry on. Someday the Citizens will be ready.
“Citizens of every country have the power to determine how their Political Class can treat them.
“Until we are collectively ready to end the joke that our Political Class have turned NIGERIA into, they’ll continue.”
