All the president in the world has said something but Muhammadu Buhari, can't he just say something? Nigerians query on social media.
But their complaints got to high-heavens and the Presidency announced Sunday afternoon that there will be a speech by 7 pm. The anticipation was an eclipse; fast forward to 7 pm and a couple of minutes after it, the narrative changed.
While some were grateful the long-awaited speech came, others weren't even listening to the content, it was the flag that had issues, oh, it was not even a live programme... but then again, the president is still quite popular on Twitter and they rose to the occasion.
#BuhariAddressNigerians The flags on that set were not even moving. They were on a stationary backdrop. Transparency is vital because nobody will listen to the message or messenger. #IJcovid19 #drkemiolunloyo

I can't take this anymore😭😥
Can God just give me a return ticket back to heaven?
I want to change my country and "repost" myself to another country in my next life.
They allowed Nigerians to spot the difference even on National TV.#BuhariAddressNigerians pic.twitter.com/LhydolXo5p

This lock down thing is all nice and dandy until it isn't anymore. When we'll hear of children dying not because of the virus but because of hunger.
Lord help us.🙏#BuhariAddressNigerians
