Nigerians on twitter have been reacting to the ongoing backlash between Nollywood star, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and President Buhari’s personal assistant on new media, Bashir Ahmad.
Omotola in a tweet she posted yesterday, said the country is hell under the watch of President Buhari. She wrote:
“The Country Under your watch is Hellish! @ProfOsinbajo @MBuhari @NGRPresident The lack of Money in circulation, Now coupled with the Continuous Assault n Killings by Uniformed men’ll make this Country implode!!!It’s Unbearable! Do something!Insecurity!Fear n Desperation everywhere.”
Reacting to her tweet, Bashir in a tweet, stated that those who are making money legitimately have no complain about the current state of Nigeria. He wrote:
Madam Omotola those who are working for CLEAN money are not complaining and will never refer our dear country as ‘hellish’. In Kano State alone, from 2015 to 2018, no fewer than 200 medium and small scale rice milling centres emerged. For that, billions circulated among millions.”
Omotola Jalade who fired back at the Presidency after it debunked her comment of ‘Nigeria is hellish under Buhari’, stated that as long as their tweet never insinuated she is not working clean for her money, she is cool with them. She wrote in response to the tweet above;
As long as you’re not insinuating that I am not working CLEAN for my money… I hear you. Its good that there are some progress… Do you truly want to say you dont see all that’s really wrong? Can we fight for our future in truth for once? Without being partisan?
Bashir then responded to Omotola’s tweet again, but this time he got some bashing of his life from Nigerians all over.
