Expectedly, Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the interview organized by Arise TV with Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari which was aired on Thursday morning.
In the interview which was obviously pre-recorded, the Nigerian President had suggested that Nigerians have not been fair to him in their judgement of his administration, and refused to comment on the Twitter ban which he effected.
The president further bemoaned the spate of violence in the country blaming the EndSARS protesters for the lack of investments and jobs, adding that Nigerian youths must behave themselves and ensure the nation is secured if they want jobs in the country.
Reacting to some of the statements made by the president, Nigerians took to various social media platforms to express their opinions.
An Instagram user, Behappy926 wrote, “With due respect sir, you are a mumu.”
Bshizzle70a said, “Blogs are a major part of the problems in this country. Check out how the key ‘nobody is going to invest in an insecure environment’ was left out of the sensational headline.”
Another user, Kimamaka_j wrote, “This is wrong on all levels sir? Is demanding for basic human rights what you call misbehaviour.”
“When Jesus said it is finished he was talking about Nigeria,” Treazyblaq wrote.
Sty_essence said, “How did I get here…I shouldn’t have seen it.”
Drolufunmilayo said, “On today’s interview Buhari referred to #EndSARS as ‘young people trying to remove him from office.’ This is the narrative he was told. Now you know why he ordered soldiers to kill people at Lekki. #EndSARS was not about police brutality for him, it was an attempted coup.”
Tfk_gawat wrote, “Forget all this twitter noise. If you get an invitation to meet the president, you’ll buy new clothes and shoes.”
