Nigerian author and human rights activist, Reno Omokri, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is better qualified to be an Instagram celebrity than a leader.
He made this statement on Twitter, where he expressed his surprise at Buhari’s response to the pandemic which has claimed tens of thousands of lives worldwide.
The author seemed bothered by the fact that the Nigerian president could only release a heavily edited silent video and some odd photos rather than having a conference.
He tweeted: "General @MBuhari’s response to the #CoronaVirus pandemic, a virus that has killed tens of thousands worldwide, is to release a heavily edited silent video, and some odd photos. Hmm! Buhari is better suited to be an Instagram celebrity, not a leader."
In a previous tweet, Omokri had asked Nigerians to be thankful to Imam Mohammad Tawhidi for his outspokenness or there wouldn't have been any video to start with.
"Nigerians spent a week asking General @MBuhari to be visible during the #CoronaVirus pandemic. He ignored us,” Omokri tweeted.
“@ImamofPeace called him ‘dumbest person in Nigeria’. The next day we saw photos and video. All Nigerians should thank Imam Mohammad Tawhidi."
