The Special Assistant to President Muhammdu Buhari on social media, Lauretta Onochie has said that Nigerian singer and songwriter, Wizkid did not disrespect the president for referring to him as an old man.
The presidential aide stated this on Tuesday, October 6 in a tweet on her verified Twitter account while reacting to the criticism that followed the singer’s comment against the president.
Naija News recalls that Wizkid had earlier called out President Muhammadu Buhari for reacting to Donald Trump’s health issues and not showing concern over the challenges been faced in the country which includes insecurity.
Wizkid tweeted, “Donald Trump is not your business old man!
“Police and SARS are still killing Nigerian youths daily. Do something!
The statement, however, stirred up reactions on social media as some Nigerians condemned the singer saying that he was been disrespectful of the president.
However, reacting to the controversial comment by Wizkid, Onochie on Tuesday took to her Twitter account to say that “Its not disrespectful to call anyone old. Its the way and manner Ayo Balogun addressed the President that leaves a sour taste in the mouth.”
“He exhibited crass ignorance, insensitivity and childishness. But hey, he’s a #DumbkidNotWhizKid
“When he grows up, he might learn respect,” Lauretta noted.
