Ezekwesili Reacts To President Buhari’s Comment On IGP Losing Weight



The co-covener of the ‘Bring Back Our Girl Movement’, Oby Ezekwesili, has called out President Muhammadu Buhari over his recent comment on the Inspector- General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.

Recall that President Buhari, when questioned on the state of insecurity in Nigeria, stated that he saw the IGP losing weight which means he is working hard on ensuring security in the country.

The president in his reply said, “I have just seen the IG, I think he’s losing weight, so I think he is working very hard,”.

The statement by the president has stirred numerous reactions from Nigerians and did not go down well with the former Minister who described it as a joke.

She took to her Twitter account and wrote; “And this is supposed to be funny? A President Buhari making a joke of the daily drenching of the country in the blood of his citizens who are killed daily without ANY consequence while he bears the title “Commander-in-Chief”? Carry on. Someday the Citizens will be ready.”

“Citizens of every country have the power to determine how their Political Class can treat them.”

“Until we are collectively ready to end the joke that our Political Class have turned NIGERIA into, they’ll continue.”
