President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday came under attack for over his failure to attend the mass burial for the victims of the Benue herdsmen killings.
President Buhari on Thursday shared a post on his official twitter page congratulating the winner of his 2017 greeting card competition.
Buhari wrote “Let me specially thank @Michael_CXT, whose submission inspired the final design of my 2017 Season’s Greetings Card. He won the open competition @NGRPresident organized to design the Card. I congratulate him, and wish him the best in his future endeavour.”
This did not go down well with Nigerians as some attacked the president for prioritising trivial matter, while Nigerians were being slaughtered.
Although some applauded him for recognising the talent in the designer of the card, other said it was a wrong day for such publication.
@alokoayo “Mr. President you should have been in Benue for the burial. You should grieve with and console us all.
@gracestober “President Mohammadu Buhari these people are being buried because the security architecture on your watch has failed and keeps failing. Nigeria cannot afford more burials!
@Vemento “This guy is epic, people are dying and you’re commenting about 2017 greetings card. What did we do to deserve this level on insensitivity.
@defendnaija “What are you foolish Nigerians loving about this greetings card when this heartless @MBuhari doesn’t care about innocent people killed by His Fulani Herdsmen.
Until we stop displaying this emotional fake love 4 these heartless politicians,Nigeria will not experience a meaningful chang
@muchomanny “Let me specially tell my fellow Nigerians that the sooner you all start accepting that we don’t have a president, the less disappointed you will feel by this man’s inaction.
