CNN mocks Nigeria over Buhari’s continued stay in London
The absence of President Muhammadu Buhari has begun to attract negative global media attention with American news network, CNN, mocking Nigeria last weekend, by asking where is President Muhammadu Buhari.
Referring to president Buhari’s absence from the country since 7th May 2017, CNN, the news television in a query on its website on Sunday asked which “head of state from which country has not set foot in his homeland in over two months?”
The mockery came in the latest edition of CNN’s “The Global Public Square (GPS)” show anchored by Fareed Zakaria. In an apparent mockery of Nigeria and her President Muhammadu Buhari, CNN, on its programme displayed at 4:59pm local time on Sunday, asked,“The head of state from which country has not set foot in his homeland in over two months?”
It went ahead to tick an option with the name Nigeria as the correct answer. The options were given as Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Nigeria and Syria. A screenshot of the mockery tweeted by Chidi Odinkalu, Former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission asked What do you say Nigerians?
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari has been in London since May 7 on a medical follow-up. Some political delegations including the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo have been visiting President Buhari in London and have told Nigerians that the president is doing just fine and will soon return to continue his presidential duties.
