Comments Flood Twitter Over Buhari’s Claims In Democracy Day Speech
While Some Nigerians have notably approved of the president Muhammadu Buhari’s democracy day speech, some have taken to twitter to say that the speech is littered with lies.
In series of posts, some Nigerians have expressed displeasure at the spate of killings, the country has faced in the last three, years, thereby scorning at the president’s statement that the insurgency has reduced in capacity.
In some other groups of post some individuals have faulted the presidents’ statement that Nigerians report less use of generators, saying that they had to put on the generator to watch the nation wide broadcast.
Joining the reactions is Sam Adeyemi, the senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, who prayed that God will save Nigeria and help Nigerians to overcome ethnic and religious prejudices.
See some tweets:
I used generator to watch Buhari's #DemocracyDay speech yet he said Nigerians enjoy better power supply now and less use of generators.
I think he's fasting, so why the lies? pic.twitter.com/eC1aXsSiWX

Like someone once said ‘’There is nothing like a baby lion. A lion is a lion’’. You’d keep thinking it is a baby lion until you go at it one day and it will consume you.
